I’ve got lots of options for memes to join in on. This is a poetry one that I’ve been considering joining for a while. I’ve got to get more writing in somehow, and this sounds like a good one 😀 If you’d like to read more, go here.

The birthday of the artist whose work prompted my creation today, that of Paul Cezanne, was celebrated at the blog. This is the particular work included there that prompted my poem.

Cowboy Clown

Finally able to rest,
The clown sets his feet on his desk
and tips his cowboy hat forwards.

For way too long
he roamed the country
and bled his cattle dry.

What this cowboy never
stopped to consider was that
a new dog would come to lead them.
