In rodeo riding,
time is defined
in two words —
start, finish.

In life,
time is also defined
in two words —
hello, goodbye.

THE ILLUSORY WORLD

Sage

This world is but a winery,
Its host and master Father Time,
Who caters only to those steep’d
In dreams discordant, without rhyme.

For people drink and race as though
They were the steeds of mad desire;
Thus some are blatant when they pray,
And others frenzied to acquire.

Few on this earth who savor life,
And are not bor’d by its free gifts;
or divert not its streams to cups
In which their fancy floats and drifts.

Should you then find a sober soul

Amidst the state of revelry,
Marvel how a moon did find
In this rain cloud a canopy.

Rodeo Dreams

The bulls and the clowns
The ups and the downs
He’s hooked on this eight-second ride
The spurs and the blood
The dust and the mud
This will be his first time to ride
His one chance at stardom
His one chance at fame
She doesn’t want him playin this game
She told him no, but he just had to go
On with his rodeo dreams
Just him and his rodeo dreams
The golden belt buckles
The cowboy’s white knuckles
Maybe he won’t take the fall
The black cowboy hats
The boots and the chaps
He ended with the worst mark of all
His one chance at stardom
His one chance at fame
She doesn’t want him playin this game
She told him no, but he just had to go
On with his rodeo dreams
Just him and his rodeo dreams
The last time she saw him, he was ridin that bull
Now that he’s gone no one will ever know about
His one chance at stardom
His one chance at fame
She doesn’t want him playin this game
She told him no, but he just had to go
On with his rodeo dreams
Just him and his rodeo dreams
She told him no, but he had to go
On with his rodeo dreams
Just him and his rodeo dreams
