Munday on Monday: Panhandle states

Updated: 2013-07-08T04:20:46Z

Panhandle states

With fifty, there is no escape:

Each state is special in its shape:

Wyoming’s corners crisply square

As ever fresh from barber’s chair;

Missouri takes Italian route

And sports a heel upon its boot;

An aching knot is plainly spread

Where Minnesota bumped its head.

But some, as if from giant stove

Can boast a handle — here’s a trove:

Of Florida and Idaho,

And Oklahoma joins the show

With Texas (just in case you missed);

A couple others make the list.

The states without one — such a scandal!

No wonder some fly off the handle.
