A Cowboy Poet Shot In The Shin

The cowboy poet went out
for a breath of fresh air.

Now he's a sad poet
who's been shot in the shin.

He looked all around,
only saw the prairie.

I could see an old cowhand strumming on his guitar in the bunk house, his sun-bleached voice breaking in the middle of the lines - - - my guess is that he was practicing fast drawing and shot himself ;)
