“Just Give Me a Cowboy Poet”

a poem by Richard Gildea, UK - poetry writer, author, poet

(As per dear MarVenea's Challenge Title)

Doc was on his 'Holliday' when Wyatt came to call,
Clanton gang OK to meet, down at the town ’Corral’
Billy learns a lesson from Pat Garrett's stern rebuke
The Kid draws on his friend, though ‘twas his own life he forsook

‘Wild Bill’ holds a hand to die for, Ace’s and two Eight’s perchance
Jesse ‘JJ’ James calls out to Brother Frank in muffled cry
Bull is sitting pretty, as the ‘long knife’ Custer makes a stand
Little Horns too Big for some when Bison need their grazing land

Tucson, Dodge and Tombstone too, speak to us down through the years
Abilene, the Chisholm trail, our Cowboy poets named a few
Davy with his racoon hat and Bowie with his blade
When Santa Anna led the charge, on Alamo where siege was laid

A mess o’ beans can set the scene, from writer’s point of view
A bed roll and a camp fire too, can conjure up the image sought
Discouraged words are seldom heard, when reading of Gazette anew
Riders of the range, with flowing pony tales of prose doth tell


The Rise and Fall of Notes
Book of "Inspirational Title Challenges"
“Well, here’s another nice mess you’ve gotten me into”
