This is awful good cowboy poetry by my friend Mark. His poem Somethin’ Bout Ranchin’ is worth a read.
A couple-four of my favorite lines:
But there’s something bout ranchin’ that’s more than the look;
Something you can’t learn from a book.
Its having grit in your teeth and a want to in your eye.
Sayin’ “no thanks” as the sell-em-all wagon passes by.
