Chain poem
Chain Poem

You can't keep your self-image

Abstaining from self-criticism.

The vanity of life –

Actions without consequences!

What's the reason for it all?

Where i m from poem
Where I’m from poem

I’m from a small farm nestled in the Jacks Creek Community in Burnsville

From riding in my car seat in the cab of a beat up 1997 black ford f-250

To riding bareback on my little pony that I use to have, Rock

I’m from riding in wagon trains and going to rodeos

From going to the SRA Rodeo in Asheville and watching the antics of the rodeo clown

To practicing telling jokes and repeating the acts that I witnessed of rodeo clowns

I’m from the livestock kind of family

From raising chickens with my papaw

To raising, training and riding horses with my dad

Acrostic poem
Acrostic Poem


Roughest sport on dirt

Outstanding show put on by the promoter

Different show every performance

Entertainment for the whole family

One of the most dangerous but entertaining sports in America


Rodeo Clown

Funny, comedian

Entertaining, climbing, laughing

Barrel, microphone, comedy acts, jokes

Running, jumping, protecting


There once was a working clown

Who was always up for fooling around

He loves making people smile

All the while driving them wild

Cowpaty, will always turn your frown upside down
