Mommy, Sister, Texas

“Mommy, Sister, Texas”

by Wayne Gagnon
(for Allie and Tammy)

Hey mommy!  Hey sister!
Where are you going?
We’re headed for Texas…
…as spring winds start blowing.

Dear sister!  Dear sister!
What will you do?
I’ll chase down some cattle…
…and rope one or two.

Hey sister!  Hey mommy!
What will you wear?
Hats, boots and denim…
…and shades for the glare.

Dear mommy!  Dear Mommy!
What is your plan?
I’ll watch, help and cheer…
…and perhaps get a tan.

Hey sister!  Hey sister!
What else will you pack?
My pony named “Bull”…
…and some vino and tack.

Dear mommy!  Dear mommy!
When will you be home?
When we’re done being cowgirls…
…with no cash to roam.

Hey mommy!  Hey sister!
Where are you going?
We’re headed for Texas…
…as spring winds start blowing.
