I Want To Be a Cowboy

I want to be a cowboy.

I think it would be fun.

I’d get to ride a big horse.

I’d get to tote a gun.

I’d get to wear a big hat.

I’d buy one that is black,

and there’d be a leather vest

covering my back.

I’d spend my days relaxing,

just riding on my horse.

I’d look just like a hero

and act like one, of course.

But this will never happen.

There is no way, no how.

The trouble is I’m terrified

of each and every cow.

This poem was inspired by a post written by Herb Thiel on his terrific blog, “The Haps With Herb”, as well as by Herb’s black cowboy hat.

    1. I’m glad you like the poem! I can’t remember exactly which post it was that inspired the poem, but as I read it, the first line of the poem popped into my head, and I wrote the rest a day or so after. The hat had to be black because of your hat. I always like reading your posts. 😊
