Before a man walked the landscapes
And before life found dis-ease
Innage brought forth perfection
In the oceans, lakes and trees
The skies of blue and fields of green
The creatures great and small
This world of planned intelligence
Has given life to all
As rivers made of nerves still flow
Through all the things that be
We strive to keep these streams alive
One art has found the key
The art to help your body heal
This science that we learn
Philosophy we understand
For wellness, all shall yearn
So take the key, unlock the door
Remove unhealthy strife
For a happy, healthy life.
-Charles M. McDaniel
Today, I am a Chiropractor
I woke up in a dream today
And God looked down on me
His voice was loud like thunder
His message clear as clear could be
He told me that each man on earth
Is given just one chance
To use their skills for goodness
Not the thrills of happenstance
He mentioned all the scientists
Their inventing, and their theories
He talked about the Audubon
Sears Tower, and World Series
He gave us mighty oceans
Therefore fishermen we need
And land that still provides for us
As farmers work their seed
The final words he spoke then
Filled my heart with warmth and pride
He told me he was thankful
Of these gifts we have inside
He said that we could help mankind
In different loving ways-
Then said, "Son you're a Chiropractor
That's how you'll help today."
-Christopher M. McDaniel, D.C.
