Old Cowboy Ron, well, that is me.
I never went to school.
I grew up working on a ranch,
and yet I ain't no fool.
I had to teach myself to read,
and writing was quite hard,
and though I've practiced quite a bit
I'll never be no bard.
I never tried to write a poem
‘til I had eighty turned.
I don't know naught ‘bout metaphors;
that's stuff I never learned.
Don't talk to me ‘bout similes
or that iambic stuff,
I don't know jack about that crap;
confusing, sure enough.
My words ain't polished, that's for sure.;
my grammar might be rough.
I just write what sounds good to me;
if you don't like it - - tough!
