Sitting by the Fire

Cowboy Bible Poetry to keep you warm in the soul.

My God and My Gun

May I have a second of your time,To get a few things off my heart.I’m not forcing you to agree with me,Just a little cowboy wisdom to impart. We have some elected leaders,That don’t know wrong from right.And you can only push a guy so far,Until he’s forced to fight....

Jesus Wears a Golden Buckle

He hit his knees and sweat drops of blood,When he knew what bull he had drawn.He would surely have the ride of his life,On a bull they called Death at Dawn. Some in the crowd cheered the cowboy,Others just knew failure was his fate.The cowboy slid up and took a deep...

Wrestling

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places.The alarm rings and its time to rise.He awakes to face another day.The...

Disclaimer

I got a call the other day,To do some poetry up here.They said I’d be on stage,Right after Scotty and my dear. Now hows a guy suposto follow,An act of that caliber and size.When all I’m doing is telling stories,That are mostly just rhymes and lies. I am blessed to be...

Calving Heifers

Oh the joy of calving heifers,Not quite what it’s said to be.I know it’s a necessary evil,But it’s a stumbling block for me. Rest of the year I can keep my cool,But sometimes I’d prefer a colonoscopy.Than having to deal with an estrogen filled,Adrenaline driven,...

A Sweeter Destination

How do you say goodbyeTo someone you truly love?Even when you’re promised,They are waiting up above. There is a time to grieve,Only you know how long.And the emotions will come back,When you hear their favorite song. With the passing of each year,The loss gets easier...

A Man’s Heart

He hurries to cast his line one last time,As the sun is setting beneath the rim.There’s no way he’s ending this trip,With his wife out fishing him once again. You’d think that after 65 years,He’d be ok with a day being beat.But there’s something inside each man,That...
