Sisters Rode-Ode 

Sisters Rode-Ode

By Brad Lockwood

The "biggest little" rodeo is in town

"The Greatest Show on Dirt!"

According to JJ the Clown.

Imported princesses, Fort Dalles,

Umatilla, Jefferson...

Peer and praise until they're done.

Denim on denim, top to toe.

Wrangler pleats like rails,

U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Co.

The "biggest little" rodeo is in town

"The Greatest Show on Dirt!"

According to JJ the Clown.

Imported princesses, Fort Dalles,

Umatilla, Jefferson...

Peer and praise until they're done.

Denim on denim, top to toe.

Wrangler pleats like rails,

U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Co.

Cowboys and four-legged athletes,

Jack Daniels, Pepsi, no Coke,

Sisters Rodeo ain't no joke.

The princesses take a spin,

Miss Oregon Rodeo a dive,

Teen boys share a dip and grin,

Such a blessed primal thrill

"She's alright, thank the Lord!"

How can we ever be bored?

To your neighbor give a shake

Stands full, ready for the ride,

How much abuse can they take?

Espresso beside Buckaroo Grill,

Bulging bellies; pulled-pork, Kettle Corn,

Pretty girls somewhat so by morn.

The gates burst open, feral colts

Dragging middle-aged men.

Wrestling a ride, bucks, jolts,

A wall crunch, Key-Lime team

He's got to have a busted back -

And this is only the warm-up act.

"I just come to see who's doing good."

Says Russ Harmer out of Canby,

The Nationals in Vegas, if they should,

Vanilla Ice dubs, Bangles, JJ the

Clown is Krunking to the Pointer Sisters,

Beauties fetching beers for Misters.

Riders have the coolest names:

Mac, Munns, Winston and Chase,

Far too tough for other games.

Buffalo trained to top his rig,

"The One Arm Bandit" in a vest,

And then there's all the rest.

Buckin' straps used to enrage,

81 points for Morgan Forbes,

Winner? We cannot yet gauge.

There's still ropin' and barrels,

More Bulls and Jack and swine,

Long after that sun don't shine.

  • The Other Half of the Yoga Equation

    The Source Issue 45 (Nov. 10) contained wonderful information about the forms of yoga offered in our vicinity. Most of the information covered pertained to the socially enjoyable forms of yoga enjoyed by the folks who use yoga mats and bendy posturing as they concentrate on improving their blissful breathing techniques. These physical forms of yoga are the beautiful compliments to the mental, mindful and meditative forms of yoga that balance the larger yoga (yogic) equation. Yoga is basically a non-denominational practice aimed at balancing the physical (body) existence with the meta-physical (mind) reality. The ensuing mind-body balance creates the union required for an increased "understanding" (consciousness) of the "living experience."

  • Walden's Corporate Servitude

    In the time-honored American tradition of peaceful civil disobedience, I am proud to be one of eight Central Oregon citizens arrested on December 5 in Congressman Greg Walden's Bend office. At our January 26 trial we plan to present a compelling defense. This act of dissent follows years of futile attempts to encourage the Congressman to hold open, unscripted town meetings accessible to a majority of his constituents. The Congressman has grown so suspicious of impromptu encounters with ordinary citizens that on Saturday he required a Bend Police Department intervention that enabled him to enter the Water Project meeting at the Chamber of Commerce through the back door. (Greg, we are nonviolent people who believe that democracy thrives on open dialogue and transparency; there is no reason to avoid us.)

  • Doors of Equality Swing Both Ways

    I had to respond to "What's Wrong with Siri," (News, 1-4) since Apple's Siri isn't the problem. Three hours before I read, "What's wrong with Siri," I went to a store in town and complimented the cashier that this was the nicest "dollar" store I had ever been in.
