Sir Lance-a-lot

Sir Lance-a-Lot

**(a tribute to my step dad, Lance)**

I was gored by a bull once.  
My friends and I stopped by this rodeo,  
with our buddy injured in the back seat.  
If you could snatch  
fifty bucks from the bull’s horns,  
it was yours.

See this scar on my chin?  
I didn’t catch the cash.  
But, damn,  
we had a fun time.
