"The Cow Boy"
“The Cow Boy” (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

wordslingers execute

with a quick silver


straight through the

mind’s eye


stand back

watch the bull shit



every fool with a pen

claiming “Manifest destiny”

heavy-handed pickaxes

attack the native tongue


ain’t no sheriff

in these parts


the grammar police

spend dusty days

tracking down outlaws

and stringing them up


poetry is the wild west

headed out into the unknown

under a thousand-mile sky

riding jet black nag

into the setting sun
