Rodeo flop

Rodeo flop

A Chapter by Dave Brown

wrong stop


Beatrice the barfly sat in the saloon

Waitin fer Bart, she’d left him some room

They were gunna hit the trail, rodeo stuff

Both Beatrice and Bart were purdy tough


But booze also had a purdy tough pull

To this Hombre and Hombrete it was a pill

Nothin could happin till least takin one sip

This day, it would be delayin their trip


Barfly and Barguy kept tipping it back

Till lights out, and them both loosing track

No moral to this tale, just a couple a drunks

Ending up smellin like a couple a skunks


The bartender, a weight lifter named Hugh

With these two, knew just what to do

Onto the boardwalk he threw the soused pair

With their rodeo day, ending up down there

Nice to have closure but this pair didnt wind up with a happy ending.
Humour piece! I guess they earned their place on the boardwalk. :)
