Great One - Poem by Gordon Jerome

So you wish to be a cowboy young man
Well listen up I’ll tell you all that I can
About the greatest one I ever knew
And his friends all call him Lasso Lou
He has driven herd on near every trail
Through snow and sleet and even hail
Now he is considered as one of the best
A true cowboy from the wild Wild West
You’ll usually find him set on his horse
Keeping the cattle calm and on course
He can outfox a fox and run down a deer
They say he has little if any known fear
He’s wrestled rustlers and fought of Sioux
Just another day on the trail for Lasso Lou
Wherever he goes they call him by name
And Tip their hat to the man and his fame
He’s a man among men bigger than most
To call him friend is a mans greatest boast
So if Lasso Lou you ever chance to meet
Walking down some Ole cow town street
Walk on up and give your best howdy do
And tip your hat to Ole Lasso Lou.
“closing thought”
To fill the boots of one greater than you
Is something everyone should strive to do
