 Poems by The Old Cowboy

The Last Man Standing

When the last man standing is gone
None will be left to sing our song
Just cold stone slabs of grey
Left standing in fields to mark our day

Soon to fade from time forever
No last man standing to remember
Our memories disappear like pictures of old
Never knowing our deeds small or bold

Gone we will be one and all
No one knowing the things we saw
The places and people we knew
In a world so large we numbered so few

Once trying to capture the wind
Traveling alone around so many bends
Now as old men we come together banding
Each hoping to be the last man standing
