WEE TOMATO BAG


From my book "Jack Elam, I Gave You The Best Years Of My Life", about my love of westerns........

WEE TOMATO BAG
“There’s a little cowboy in all of us, a little frontier.” Louis L’Amour

My mother,
Forever wise in the ways of the world,
Knowledgeable, sensible,
Always to be trusted,
Would tell this young son
That when a cowboy was wounded,
It wasn’t real blood,
It was just that his “wee tomato bag”
Got busted.
