"I Ain't Never Been a Cowboy"
I ain't never been a cowboy. Now that's just a natural fact. Some say it's all just make believe. Some say it's all an act. I ain't never been a cowboy, 'cause God had other things for me to do. Like standin' up for law and order and helpin' folks like you. Since I was knee high, I've dreamt of livin' a life out on a ranch. But, with all the twists and turns in life, I just never got the chance. So, "Why the cowboy duds?", you ask and "Why the wide brimmed hat?" "Don't it seem a bit too much?" Well, let me answer that. I may always be a lawman and never know the life of bustin' broncs or pushin' cows...a hard, but simple life. But, I'm still allowed to dream of days gone by and what coulda...shoulda been. I may be a lawman on the outside, but a cowboy lives within.

A Dear in the Headlights
"You sure your OK to drive Tom?" "Yes, haven't had too many beers, Besides I'm not a teenager but a man of 40 years" The men all saw him stagger As he walked out to his truck But they didn't try to stop him Because they didn't give a fuck He drove out to the road His speed a little fast He came to the intersection His foot heavy on the gas He didn't see the boy Who crossed the road that night It was too late to brake He drove through the red light He thought he'd hit a deer So he didn't slow his pace He knew his wife was waiting A worried look upon her face "Have you seen our son Tom? he was walking by the lake he's been gone for three hours do something for heaven's sake" Just then Tom felt sick with dread He finally knew what he had done And later on that evening He knew he'd killed his only son.
saw this poem somewhere and thought I'd post it to remind everyone who is celebrating this Memorial day to remember to be responsible and don't drink and drive.

ITS JUST A HORSE
Its just a horse they say something that eats grass, grain and hay but they have never known the nicker when you come in the barn out of the rain in a slicker its just a horse
They have never saw the newborn colt that within minutes of birth stands on wobbly legs and when you approach is ready to bolt or the soft touch of that colts nose upon your hand or fingers when you get close its just a horse
They have never had a friend like a horse that in you he has complete trust of course They have never felt the head upon your shoulder when they are older and a lot bolder Its just a horse
They have never felt the power as you ride like the wind on his back They have never seen his gentle ways alas and alack They have never seen him side step to put a kid back in the saddle When up on his back they became addled Its just a horse
There might be better companions than a horse But to me they are hard to compare I only hope my life to share But to many Its just a horse
