Sharpening My Pencil
Being laid up just a bit,
Until this busted wrist can heal,
I aint much help around the homestead,
So I'll try a different deal.
I used to be an honest lad,
but after years of writing rhymes,
I got hooked on telling wild west tales,
And I find me lying half the time.
Honest work is out the question,
There's few choices left you know,
For a gimped-up, has-bin, BS artist...
I'll go judge a rodeo!
PS. I quit judging rodeos a dozen years ago because I kept getting tempted to enter, but I think enough time has passed it may be safe to go back now .
