 Poems by The Old Cowboy

Tribute to Jackie Kays

There is a old warrior who has served his country well
Form the end of a World War through the Vietnam hell

A true American serviceman who has given back so much
A author of books and poems  so many lives he's touched

I can say that he has truly influenced mine so many times
With his stories of life and adventures when he was in his prime

The knowledge this man holds is so impressive
In his writing and speech he can hold you captive

This gentle man who gives so much to mankind
In history his life and writing shall be enshrined

It is a great honor for me that he is a friend and mentor
Proud that he calls me his Jungle buddy and brother
