A Chapter by Dave Brown



About our names, my horse and I

Went to the desert to remember

It was really hot out there

On the fifth day of November


Because of the crazy heat

I thought I was going insane

Each time I looked at a prairie dog

I wuz sure I saw my sister Jane


The black flies were buzzin all around

And the cactus, they were growin

And the buffalo on their backs

Were all gruntin and a-rollin


I saw something flying high

Looking like a horse’s mane

And on a banner dragging behind

Lookin like it spelled a name


Another mane and another name

But it was great eagles flying by

Now I could remember our names

As the eagles looked my eye


Whenever we want to remember our names

We go into the desert again

And there, as we watch those eagles fly

We can hear that song a-playin

Author's Note

Dave Brown
I continually have 'Horse With no Name' rolling around in my head so I decided to try and make a poem (?) out of it

You shuda bin there
very impressive
This is a great way to put that song into a poem. I love the details and to me the desert is like those times when we go into nature’s to find ourselves and leave behind what we don’t need

I'll have to make sure I tell my sister Jane that I was just kidding
You know I thought music too. When you mentioned Eagles, I was with that group of my yoof. However I do remember Horse With No name too. That desert sounds far too hot. I think you need to stay away from it, you might get lost and you might well have more hallucinations :)) I don't think your sis Jane would be too 'appy being likened to a prairie dawg :)) Good afternoon from across the pond on a fine spring day, Dave.
