This is a book that shows cowboy poetry is still alive anywhere you find a sweaty saddle blanket, a green colt and someone who survived the wreck long enough to tell the story! A COMMOTION IN RHYME is meant to be a mate of POEMS WORTH SAVING (2013), full of cowboy stories and poems but the two aren’t the same! This book contains poems and stories that answer questions like; Where is the Fetal Eye View? How do you pronounce ‘CHAPS’, as in Women Wearing Chaps (hint: CHAPS, as in the opposite of CHICKEN.) Operating Instructions: Remember, poetry is meant to be read, recited, performed, signed and/or spoken aloud. So, even if you’re sitting in the tack room quietly reading to yourself…at least move your lips!
by Baxter Black
The bestselling novel from America’s premier cowboy poet.
Cowboys Lick and Cody are on a quest to qualify for the rodeo national finals—and their widely entertaining, often hilarious adventure includes a smattering of sex, violence, intrigue, and the occasional philosophical rumination. These modern-day cowpokes—two chivalrous knights of the rope and range with a hankering for bucking broncos and for the female of the two-legged species—find much more than they bargained for in Oklahoma City. Against the colorful, flamboyant backdrop of the hard-ridin’, hard-playin’ rodeo circuit, they encounter a city woman named Lilac, with whom Cody falls in love; a bull named Kamikaze; and two corrupt Texas billionaires who bet against Lick. In the vein of a latter-day Will Rogers, Baxter Black combines a colorful yarn with occasional bits of his unique cowboy philosophy and poetry.
