BONANZA


You’d get the episode story intro,
Involving three Cartwright sons and their Pa,
Before the music twang to start the show -
Dun-da-da, dun-da-da, dun-da-da, dun-da-da, da-daaaa -
Then a map of Nevada catching fire,
Revealing four riders heading to me,
Out of their vast Ponderosa empire,
Far away adventure on my TV.
Adam, Joe, Ben and Eric (known as Hoss),
Workin’, lovin’, fightin’ and rightin’ wrongs,
Helping waifs and strays they’d stumble across,
A western as simple as country songs.
          Me, uncredited member of the cast,
          Kid Cushnan, way out West in West Belfast
