Did I Leave My Wife for This?

Yes folks, there are gay cowboys, more than you may realize. Let the bubble burst!

Did I Leave My Wife for This?

You left your dirty socks there in the kitchen
And an empty stack of beer cans by our bed
I thought I’d roped a stud, but I must have caught a dud
From the way things might be looking here instead
And I really hate to sound like I am bitchin’
But your breath tastes just like Skoal when we kiss
I guess I had a dream, and as hard as it may seem
Did I leave my wife for this?

I always love our wrestling competition
But do you always have to be the one to win?
And I cannot understand how my big rodeo man
Thinks 8 seconds is enough to make me grin
Now as long as I have gotten your attention
Could you wipe the toilet seat off when you miss?
I really ain’t no prude, but then you really ain’t no dude
Did I leave my wife for this?

But then I see your dimpled cheeks in the lamplight
And your smile grinning at me, ear-to-ear
You know I can’t resist no buckin’ cowboy
And you soon remind the reasons why I’m here

Okay . . . . .
So please take all your beer cans to the kitchen
And I can learn to love the Skoal in your kiss
It might be on your breath, but it ain’t the kiss of death
Did I leave my wife for this?
Hell yeah, I did!
I left my wife for this!

An amusing little fluff piece but not something that is gonna keep readers coming back.

You're right! But I wrote it a number of years ago, and I decided that rather then having it collect dust in my files I'd put it online instead. It's not something I'm investing my writing in anymore, besides my guitar skills are eroding with the advancing neuropathy in my hands. Typing is challenge enough. LOL But I appreciate the comment, and I'm impressed that you'd read it at all. As always I value your input.
