LIVIN' THE DREAM
By Alvin Stanley, Army
Writing Type: Poem
The city dude was guest of the week
At a working cattle ranch.
To realize his cowboy dreams,
He now would have the chance.
He got up early and dressed for the part,
In his jeans with boots and hat.
After breakfast he met the foreman
And they began to chat. '
He said, ""I've often imagined,
About helping 'round up cattle,
a-ridin' them horses at full speed
and just tryin' to stay in the saddle.""
The foreman said, ""Yeah, I know what you mean.
Well, it's time to do it, pod'ner.""
As he set his hat and calmly strolled
Out to his helicopter.
