Someone told the weatherman
To call his coverage area
A word the community would like,
So, he called us “the heartland”.
With agriculture in the area
It certainly was on land,
And everyone in the community
Has a heart in their possession.
The weatherman was new to newscasting
With the on-air presence of a geek
Who loves storm forecasting
More than public speaking skills.
So, he called the place “heartland”
Again and again and again and again.
Thirteen times in the weather segment
So we knew he connected with viewers.
All of us who live with hearts and live upon the land
Appreciate his interest in making us feel like friends,
… But not 13 times in one segment.
