Blue Eyed Dog

Published:

Cowboy Poetry is the easiest of all to write -- it rhymes, usually.  If you know the vernacular, you can sell it, although most of it is not very good.  There are exceptions.  "Tying A Knot In The Devil's Tail" is a classic, and usually recited at every social event from banquets to weddings to baby christenings by one cowboy or another who is three sheets to the wind and wanting to show off.

I write  cowboy poetry, too.  Mine is based on the events or objects that I'm around every day.  This one is about my dog, Daisy, bossy little bitch that she is.

 

Blue Eyed Dog

Now every good trainer will tell you

Don't  be over harsh with your pup

Just raise it with  love and affection

If it makes a mistake, don't give up.

 

So my little pup was a doozy

A blue Aussie Shepherd, you bet!

She'd make me the perfect companion 

Those Aussie's are smart as they get.

 

She learned right away how to read me

And took to the cows like a pro

But she had her own mind how to do things

And wouldn't back up to a "No!".

 

I slowly began to take notice

that my cow-dog thought she was the boss,

But she worked cows alright, and kept the bunch tight,

Didn't chouse 'em or run the calves off.

 

She let me know when she was hungry

Or when someone came through the gate

Made sure I got up in the morning

And whined if I stayed up too late.

 

Now, the cowgirl's obeying the cow-dog

Let me tell you, "Whatever you do

Raise your pup with love and affection

Just don't get one that's smarter than you"!

No question about it, indeed you are very good, a true CowGirl Poet.
You might had made a good singing cowgirl.
