Bucking bronco, rotating out the gate,
Ton of flesh, an expression of hate,
Provoked to anger in a pen,
Intentionally, by rodeo men.
Brutal Tongue, through lips at rapid rate,
Can unload tons of passion and hate,
Provoked to anger from within,
Intentionally, by devilish fiend.
Burning like a wildfire out of control,
Stronger than firefighters on patrol,
Each one can hit like a lightning jolt,
Bronco with shock; man with thunderbolt.
Midst man or beast; taming the wild is hard,
Cowboy or steed in rodeo yard,
Tongue or bronco with flaming ire,
“Tis hard to bridle a burning wildfire.
