“I’ve submitted short poems to be turned loose onto your wild prairie of indomitable verse.”

 

JOHN WAYNE MOVIES
My Grandfather only ever liked two things
Fishing and John Wayne movies
He would always say that fishing relaxed him
But there was never the promise
That you would catch anything
Life is so full of uncertainties
He’d tell me as a child
More and more there are no guarantees
At least in John Wayne movies
He’d say
You know who’s gonna fucking win.
