Cowboy Bill

Wild Bill Bailey loved his liquor far too much for his own good- Spent his days in smokey taverns draining far more than he should. Adeline had long suspected as he rode off into town that he'd rather wet his whistle than get wed and settle down. So she gave an ultimatum: 'Quit the booze or say goodbye to my cherry lips and dumplings chili beans and pumpkin pie'. Bill no longer wastes his wages swigging at the ol' saloon Adeline cajoled her cowboy ; rumour is they'll marry soon. 27.01.21 Cowboy Poetry Poetry Contest Sponsor : Line Gauthier
