Text

Caro Brown both tall and lean
Who won an award it seems,
For something she wrote
Long, big and really great
We’re happy for you, that’s no
Mistake.
Your nice to work with day after day
And you do your job in a straight forward way.
Your column is important, we know thats
True,
We’ll always stick by you whatever you do.
So heres to the gal so honest and wise
We’re proud you won the great Pulitzer
Prize
