Tales - Poem by Gordon Jerome

Light by the fire and pull up a seat
I’ll tell ya a story while we up an eat
All about this cowhand named Lasso Lou
Now listen close this could happen to you
It was up on the Brazos late in the year
Ole Lasso Lou was out huntin dear
He followed a buck way back in a draw
And ran into the biggest Bear he ever saw
Now Lasso Lou was no small man
And I doubt from a fight he ever has ran
So he grabbed that Bear and gave him a squeeze
And off they went just a bouncing off trees
Lasso hung on with all of his might
He knew this would be one heckova fight
They wrestled about all day and night through
But that Bear had no luck shaking off Lasso Lou
Ole Lasso was stuck riding high on its back
Trying his best from becoming a snack
So he grabbed hold that Bear by each fuzzy ear
Sank deep both his spurs and begun to steer
He ran that Bear straight into a boulder
And off Lou flew over its shoulder
Now Lasso Looked down on that Bear lying dead
With two torn ears and a flattened out head
He asked himself what I now ask you
How do you like your Bear stew?
“closing thought”
When you have a problem that “bears” down on you
Hang on tight and steer your way through
