Bow-Legged Pete

There once was a lanky cowpoke named Pete,

Who, when he walked got tangled in his feet!

He'd spent years ridin' his horse,

Becomin' bow-legged, of course!

Looked like a pair of pliers pacin' the street!

    Nice poem Robert. I guess all cowboys in Texas are Bow - legged. They just have to do it the cowboy way. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla
