The title work from my whimsical cowboy poetry book of the same name - a collection of poetry, short stories, andcowboy musings.

Cowboys Donít Read Poetry!

Poetry? Thatís sissified!
You know it ainít fer me!
No lace doilie on th dash of MY truck
and donít ask me over for tea.

I take my rhyme straight, just like my drink,
delivered by Willie or Merle.
With lots of guitar and fiddle strains;
read yore durned old poems to a girl.

Iíll just sit over here and think about cows
and those fences that need a manís touch.
You go ahead and read if you want,
it sure wonít bother me much.

Say, thatís right purty, whoops didnít mean that;
no, I didnít mean the words that you said.
I was only complimenting such a fine hat
as the one youíve got on your head.

No, you go right ahead, you ainít bothering me none
as long as youíre sure that you see;
that even though I donít mind it around,
Cowboys donít read no po- e - try!

Of course cowboys don't read poetry, Terry... they write it! Excellent, excellent, excellent: great rhyme, wonderful flow, and truly captured the accent. I was raised in Arlington, Texas, now living in Washington State. Visit me sometime. ~~Bonnie Q
