That ol’ buzzard

just a sittin’ in that ol’ tree,

looking so hungry,

I think he’s a eyein’ me!

I ain’t dead yet,

ya ol’ bird!

Fly away now,

Go on ya hear!

There ain’t nuthin’

for ya near!

 Saw that ol’ coyote,

a while ago.

Got him a rabbit,

just a comin’ up

outta his hole.

Go on now,

find that ol’ cuss

I know ya kin do it,

go make a big ol’ fuss!

Yore big en scary,

he’ll run away.

Hurry now,

don’t tarry!

This is yore lucky day!

Shore glad I weren’t

a takin’ no nap,

That ol’ bird

woulda been a

sittin’ on my lap.

As always let me know what you think!

  13. I can see the image of an aged old cow poke slumbering around lazy like, chewing on a wad of tobacco and ‘shootin the breeze while trying to strike up a conversation with the ole buzzard. Ha. Ha.

    • Yep, that is where I was coming from. Thanks!

  14. Funny! I needed a laugh today. Thank you. Mine’s on the list.

    • Thanks, glad you liked it! I really enjoyed yours too!

  20. Delightfully done! Ambles along like a cowpoke under his Stetson, heading home after a big round up. Great feel to this poem.



    • Thank you Doug! This ol’ cowpoke is kinda ornery!

  21. Nice job! Really enjoyed that.

  22. Hmnn…While the buzzard sat in his tree and the poet contemplated, I saved the universe from awful death, reasoned to a solution to the problem of human nature, found the Higgs Boson, accounted for dark matter and awakened with nothing to show for it…

    • Hmnnn….okie dokie! Thanks for stopping in!

  23. lol love the rhythm in this, how it just flows along

  24. You do have a way with words, in every idiom 😉

    I think you should consider publishing them, too!!
