All Hat, No Cowboy


All Hat, No Cowboy

Smoke cleared out and morning came

On a stone cold Monday here to stay

Here’s to makin' change

Here’s to a change of pace

The whitewashed fences are turning grey

New day’s paint dries out yesterday’s fade

Then it flakes away

Here’s to makin' change

Here’s to a change of pace

I’ve been mimicking death through the same horse race

Wages getting’ higher but she still don’t place

They’re all cashing out on my mistakes

Here’s to the holidays,

May they last “one more day”

To one more drink, and one more ace

For everyone I put down the circle don’t get straight

Here’s to makin’ change

Here’s to a change of pace

So much pain and emotion comes through in your poems. Easy to read without wasted words. I can feel the struggle. Great conveyance of thought, breadth and sound!

CountryComet commented on All Hat, No Cowboy


Nice! I liked the way it read, the rhythm it has is unique but not haltering or constricted. It was thought provoking yet somehow managed to be light an east to read =)

Poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history.

Plato (BC 427-BC 347) Greek philosopher.
