Poem Commentary

Just a look back at my childhood memories and all the great western TV shows that were so popular then.

Saturday Morning Buckaroo's

 

Back in the 50's

our hero's had shows

with cowboys and injuns

and great buffalo

 

That would glue us to TV's

each Saturday morn

with afternoon adventures

in western adorn.

 

Wearing cowboy hats, western shirts

six guns and jeans

carrying repeating rifles

living out our dreams

 

We'd ride our wood fences

saddled atop post and rail

through imaginary canyons

down treacherous trails

 

On the hunt for some rustlers

that stampeded our herd

or shot down some townsfolk

those dirty cowards.

 

We'd meet at high noon

on the street to fast draw

an stand mono a mono

against an outlaw

 

Or track injuns that burned down

some settlers home

an fight behind trees

in the woods all the day long.

 

But without our hero's

we'd not been inspired

to imagine scenario’s

in our western attire.



So thank you Roy Rogers

Gene Autry an Hoppy

for hero's to kids

who's lives we could copy,



Bill Hickok an Masterson

The Lone Ranger an Tonto

Kit Carson, Jim Bowie

Cisco and Poncho.

 

And big cast adaptations

with plenty of folk

Rawhide, Wagon Train

and especially Gunsmoke.

 

Then there’s Yuma the Rebel

to add to the rabble

Annie Oakley for girls

an Paladins Have Gun Will Travel.

 

These were my favorites

but I'd bet you'd agree

Entertainment was best

back when TV was free.

You are so right about entertainment when it was free. I am barely able to contain myself at times when commercials run. I think there used to be a law limiting the time ads can run between episodes.. You have to read my latest continuing adventures of us. I think you'll like it. Maybe we could share the write. I sure loved those shows. Maybe you can write about the cartoons we used to watch. You know; QueeckStraw and his pard, Yogi and BooBoo etc. Eweduhmaaannn

This was a fun read! Alittle bit before me (just a few years). Even still, our imaginations kept us outside!

To have great poets there must be great audiences too.
