The Westerners 2 - Poem by Sambidhan Acharya

Gone are days when you use to catch horses from gaucho,
Gone are the days when all the westerners meant gun followers,
Gone are those days when you had only denim to wear,
And gone are those days when your house was mere stables.

Today, your description has been changed,
You are symbol of hardworking individuals,
All the guns are dumped and technology are being hugged,
And, all those stables have been transformed into arm chair well equipped office.

But, still the profession your ancestor landed the farming is being embraced by you,
Still those plains are grazed by horses, cows and ships,
Still the Appalachian and Andes does not miss you,
Still you are the source of style for the commons.

Yes, you still farm raring cattle and horses,
But the change has been you have used well the resources available,
The grazing lands are well maintained so that all can graze without being watched,
All the cows are still fed but the style has been machinery.

All those crops are still cultivated and reaped,
But the difference is it's done by flying saucer discovered by man,
You have started working in offices instead of working in stables,
The rage inside you has given the hardworking people to the country.

In the past people wanted to be you due to elegant style,
The way they see driving horses and carrying gaucho in hand,
But even today you have gone through modernization,
All of us want you to be the person like you as per your, pleasant change in behaviour,
The way you have made use of the modern techniques,
Yes, even today all the children want to be westerns.
