A Cowboy's Day

I wake up very early, and get out of bed before dawn My barn animals need to be fed and their water drawn The steer looks healthy, hope they will bring me some cash It helps pay the bills and I'm almost out of my only stash I polish my new boots, black crocodile with fresh spurs Going out later to impress Susie, hope soon to be hers Looking forward to some line dancing and riding the bull Putting on my black Stetson, hoping the bar’s not too full I see Susie’s eyes sparkle as she waves her pretty hand Tonight’s looking up, I even like the new Country band After a few beers, I climb up on the bull and go for a ride I am in the rodeo competition and have no fear, only pride I ride the bull several times, laughing with my ranch friends Susie says yes to slow dancing, hope this night never ends It’s now getting close to midnight; I must call it a night I give Susie a quick kiss and we both swoon with delight I drive back to my cattle ranch feeling happy with a big smile Thinking this cowboy hasn’t had a good night out in awhile Kicking off my boots, I head to my bed, it will be dawn soon Dreaming about the rodeo competition tomorrow afternoon 1/29/2021 Contest: Cowboy Poetry Contest Sponsor: Line Gauthier
