Rough and gritty, the way it ought to be.

I like your jaunty style of narration because it suited the topic and scene perfectly, and really set it off to an advantage. I didn't like the saying at the end because I felt that it interrupted the more personal tone of the poem.

oh I love it !

"try to buck the world off" - beautiful

"Legs in a whore's grip" - perfect.

Sincere narrative voice, deft relationship building: I don't even like rodeo an you had me loving this!

rough and tumble prose, great description

well placed imagry. Its not often you find a poem like this on this site, but when there is one it is like a gem.

This fits in with the gunsmoke radio shows that I have been listening to lately. That kind life isn't what it once was. Good job with this one.

I like this. And I think that leaving the saying at the bottom is better than including it in the poem. It's better that way, I think. Almost like a tribute at the end, you know?

It was pretty good. You got me at "whore's grip".

Anyhow, I did have one issue with the saying at the end. This is a poem, and you ended it with a saying that sounds like a poem. I think if you incorporated the saying into the poem, it would make more sense. It's kind of like if instead of putting credits at the end of the movie, you put another, shorter movie. It just doesn't fit in well.
