Cowboys, it has been said, are more poetic than folks in any other occupation (except maybe poets). Whether they are or not, cowboy poetry is more noticable than any other occupational type. How much lawyer poetry have you run across? Heard any plumber poems lately? But cowpoke poetry's all over the place.
To explain the phenomenon further, we call on that raconteur, bon vivant, and CowBoy Poet – Fred Engel.
|The Lone Prairie Poetry Page
invites CowBoy poets to add their works to the distinguished and semi-distinguished band of bards already published here. All entries are judged on neatness and appropriateness. Decision of the judges is final, and there is absolutely no prize nor compensation whatsoever. Rewards are limited to our heartfelt thanks and whatever fame and glory comes along.
