COWBOY CHARACTER HITS THE TRAIL
Poem by: David1611
Cowboy Character Hits the Trail
Cowboy Character had cattle to herd.
He could sell them in Dallas was the rancher's word.
His goal in mind was a bag of money.
So he pondered a while eating biscuits and honey.
He gathered his thoughts and planned the day;
For trouble was sure along the way.
Lazy cattle, wind, and storm
Wolves, rustlers and bees that swarm!
So as the birds sang through the morning mist
He thought and thought and wrote this list:
For the herd of cattle he needed a rope.
He needed his spurs when he rode the slop.
He took his hat for when the birds flew by.
And He needed his coat when the storm rode high.
He carried his chest for the bag of money.
Being unprepared was just not funny.
He wore his scarf for the dusty wind,
And He planned his trip from start to end.
So the wind blew hard!
The storm went wild!
The cattle were lazy!
But the Cowboy just smiled!
His plan was tight so it wouldn’t rattle.
And he rode to Dallas and sold his cattle.
Wind, Storm and flocks of birds
Couldn’t stop the Cowboy’s herd.
He made good decisions a bag of money to win.
For the time to plan is before you begin.
