Posses ‘n’ Hosses

cowboy 1
AnElephantCant pretend he’s a cowboy
But he thinks he can act in a Western
He’s not smart like Butch
He can’t drive a Stagecoach
But he can earn a Fistful of Dollars like the best of ‘em

He thinks he looks cool in a Stetson
And macho with his boots in the stirrup
But he won’t go to Tombstone
Certainly not on his own
He prefers to stay behind Wyatt Earp

He is a cert for The Good The Bad and The Ugly
You decide which part he must play
He stands beside Shane
He Drifts the High Plains
And covers Paul Newman’s back in Hombre

He was always cute when he Wore a Yellow Ribbon
He Dances with Wolves and then needs a rest
He avoids a free for all
At the OK Corral
And lives peacefully Once Upon a Time in the West

One Eyed Jacks see Brando winning hands down
Blazing Saddles is funnier than a Yosemite Sam cartoon
AnElephant’s wee brother
Says no one is tougher
Than Gary Cooper as he waits for High Noon

He isn’t The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
He doesn’t want to be Unforgiven
He ain’t no John Wayne
He’s more Calamity Jane
He wants to be number eight in The Magnificent Seven

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/

    Reblogged this on hugmamma's MIND, BODY and SOUL and commented:
    On a lighter note today…an elephant who can do just about anything, it seems. At the top of the list…write the heck out of any situation. Maybe not so fast on the draw…but certainly quick with the pen…and some! Enjoy! I’m certain JFK would’ve chuckled at this pink dude in a Stetson and boots…

    ………hugmamma.

    Emmy is laughing so hard
    She can’t think of rhymes.
    Still AnElephant in a Stetson
    Must be magnificent,
    But what does he do about hosses?

    So you are saying ..

    Rather than being an injun
    He would more likely be a singed* one
    He would run and hide in a pot
    When someone fired off the first shot

    He would be happier hanging out with the Jetsons
    Rather than with pistols, but still wear the Stetson
    He would do that as a rule
    Because, stetsons are cool

    *singed as in burnt, not singed as sang
