The Robot Rodeo
by Paul Harwitz
You'd really enjoy the action and the thrills at the Robot Rodeo.
It's held every year in the town of Casper, Wy-o.
Gleaming steel cowboys ride ornery mechanical bull beasts.
It's so exciting, the crowd jumps right out of their seats.
Pretty metal cowgirls execute amazing barrel racing.
The cybernetic barrels have little feet and wheels a-pacing.
Those barrels try to barge into their way.
The cowgirls try to outsmart 'em, and it's quite a fray!
Metallic mustangs try to throw off each shiny cowpoke.
Those bronc-riders try to stay on and not to get broke.
The iron horses shimmy and jump and buck
So much that sometimes parts fly off 'em like offen a truck.
The stainless calves try to outrace the sly, agile, robot ropers.
Those computerized cowponies work with their riders as one.
The composite cowboys rope and throw each whirring, whirling calf.
Then all the competitors enjoy a refreshing hot-oil bath.
