gawd did I wanna be a Cowboy! Still do! More than I wanted be a Nun! Regards this dream I have no shame what's so
ever folks. I want to ride the range in my cool cowboy suit, and bark at
Yeah I knows all about the Native genocide, the
lynching of Chinese workers, the routine rapes, the lack of toilet paper,
and bad breath. Still I refuse to give this one up. Especially since I
always KNEW! that there was Colored Cow Boys!!
Yahooo!!! ...no relation to that certain computer company.
Yippie!, Yippie!, Kai!, Yai!, Yay!! Get'a long! Git!, Git!, along! You Doggies!!
my pals reading this are say'n,"..he's finally lost it." Nah I'm okay.
It's just that this fantasy is as vivid as when I was 7 or 8.
hasn't changed that much. There's just something about that American
myth of the West that makes most human males go nuts.
Regardless of race creed or color we all, or at least a heck of a lot of us wanted to be cowboys that's all there is
to it. Period, and Amen. Okay there's exceptions, politically correct language bullies,
race nuts, and Native Americans.
The Native American are the only
ones with morality, and history on their side of the argument.
of them is just assholes.
Out of respect to my Native pals ya
might want to skip this one, and scroll down. Or maybe not. See to be
able to keep my dream of the West I had to make certain ,..eh,
historical "adjustments" here, and there. Hey, I'm politically
incorrect, but I ain't a damned Nazi!
in my alternate history parallel reality "American West" there was 'no' genocide, slavery,
wanton murder, or mayhem. In
this 'other' history the meetings of peoples on this continent was
friendly, and peaceful. Native, and settlers were pals. Slavery was
forbidden, and eveybody got on swell.
It is in this happier West
that I play out my Cowboy Dreams.
So there! My west is a cool, fun, happy one.
We play shoot'em up, and have fun, but nobody gets hurt. We have a
big bar-b-q after playing Cowboy all day,...a veggie table too.
I got a lot of paleface, and Native boyfriends. We have square dances at the fort every Saturday.
remember explaining all this to George Stonefish, some will remember
him as the producer of the WBAI.org Native program "Drumbeats."
He said he'd like
to visit my "West". This because then he'd have his Country back, and could go home.
More later partners. I has to take a snooze.
