Greenhorn Cowpoke

He pulled up to the Triple "T" Ranch in a shiny Cadillac.
In his trailer was an Arabian steed with the finest tack.
He wore Tony Lama alligator boots and Calvin Klein jeans,
And a stylish Stetson hat - he looked like a man of means!
He strode to the corral where grizzled cowpokes lazed.
They chortled at the greenhorn, each of them amazed!
"Where's the boss?" he asked, "I'm seeking a position!"
"Over yonder" said they.  (The boss eyed him with great suspicion!)
The boss sauntered over to see what the hullabaloo was all about.
"I'll handle this!  You fellers git back to work!" he said with a shout!
He sized up the lad saying, "Son, I ain't impressed with them fancy labels!
But you're hired! Here's a shovel! Ya kin start by muckin' out them stables!"

Bob, congratulations on your solo first-place win in the green contest. I enjoyed every aspect of this poem -- the creative concept, your description of the expense the would-be cowpoke undertook and the hilarious way he reported for work and ended up mucking the stalls! It was like watching a funny movie. Excellent work. I will try to get your prize in the mail this coming week and expect to be taking a short break from Soup. Congrats again! Hugs, Carolyn

My cup of tea. I loved this, well written. Reminded me of that ol' eastern dude, Gregory Peck. He fought most of the night with Charlton Heston, but Greg made his point.
