A Cowboy is contest: Deanz

There once was a cowboy called Deanz,

Who lived on a diet of beans,

It was windy that night -

I can feel for his plight -

Yes, he needed to change his jeans...

Tales amongst natives of the plains

Of a shepherd dog's near human brain-

Adventures of two, close as twins

Rusty a lad,with  boyish grin

And his Alsation...Rin-Rin-Tin

Short Cowboy poem by J B| Details |

the love of the West

a hat a cowboy doesn't make

even a horse or ridin' the range

it's the love of the West

the mountain sunsets

the valley stretching out for miles

the sound of the coyote howl
