he’s still quite the charmer
he manages, somehow
to keep his good humor
despite marrying a sow
He spurred her to give it a shot.
No spurs no jingle jangle.
The beginning of last verse had me worried…
And if Earl dared to counter:
“My gal rides side-saddle / And although she denies
It’s ‘cause over the years / She’s developed fat thighs!”
As a kid she probably popped bubba’s balloons
How do you annoy a poet? Be another poet.
It wouldn’t be half as annoying if she didn’t have that happy look on her face!
Cowboy poet: Oh give me mah boots an’ mah saddle… Audience: Oh! Give me ear plugs for my head!
Now now. It’s one of those fancy reclinin’ saddles. Massages the the critter at the same time. Not that they really care for it.
Local paper has a hunting/fishing columnist who is interesting writing about his adventures and town history. Once a year his wife writes a humorous column about him on Father’s Day.
My first laugh-out-loud of the day, and that doesn’t happen often.
She needs one more line.
Though his prose may seem witty, It seems he is only looking for pity..
Doggerel – poetry that is irregular in rhythm and in rhyme, often deliberately for burlesque or comic effect
I saddled Ol’ Duff and rode out to do battleWith dogies and steers and other wild cattleAnd my wife’s response, “Be done with your prattle—It stinks worse than the seat of your saddle!!”
Good one, Opal!
“And he’s married to a dumpy wife, who does her best to wreck his life!”
Can’t wait til tomorrows strip! LOL‼️☺️
You can ALWAYS count on Opal to ruin the mood…..
Some of the best cowboys became those old barfly duffers sitting on the western tavern porches. Chill Wills, Gabby Hayes, and Smiley Burnette were tweeners.
I’ve heard that song about Buffalo Rome but never could find it on the map.
Well, that’s where writers get it done.
Stay tuned, Earl going to go on the defensive
He’s a cowboy at heart, or so he’d brag, too bad he married, such an insufferable nag.
A cowboy’s a mindset,
No cattle required,
Earl’s somewhat like thet,
As a poet inspired
He talked about writing cowboy poetry for one strip and then just went on to other things. Where’s the poetry?
It’s been quite a long time since I last sat astride a horse but I still like watching Westerns.
love it! :D
Here’s som ChatGPT-generated cowboy poetry. Opal’s much better.
“The Lone Rider”
Ridin’ through the dusty plains,With the wind in my hair,My trusty steed by my side,And my hat tipped low, I stare.
The sun beats down on my back,As I make my way alone,Through the vast and endless land,That I call my home.
I’ve got a gun by my side,And a heart full of pride,I’m a cowboy, through and through,Ridin’ free, with nothin’ to hide.
I’ll sing my songs ‘round the campfire,And tell my tales with glee,For I am the lone rider,And the wild west is where I’ll be.
As the stars come out above,And the moon lights up the night,I’ll ride off into the distance,With the wind in my eyes, and my heart full of fight.
For I am the cowboy,The lone rider on the range,With my horse and my hat,And my spirit free, I’ll never change.
