The saddle tramps

We used to be maverick
quick on the draw and
quicker on our feet,

we were lone star
taking it as far as we dared
and
not caring if anyone cared.

what are we now?

we’re in yesterday shoes
reading yesterday news
wondering who’s next.

I won’t fall into the trap of
thinking that’s that
when there are more things
I need to do.
