Cowboys Aren’t So Bad

Remember the song, “Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys?” I think Willie Nelson could do us all a grand favor by providing a more modern version. There are so many more concerning professions Mamas need to be on the look out for now. I’d take a cowboy any day over internet predator, petty thief, white collar criminal or drug dealer.

I understand Mamas aren’t solely responsible for the adults their children become. They should play a considerable role, however. There is no denying every mass of living, breathing flesh that populates our prisons has a biological mother. Biology isn’t enough though. We wouldn’t just drop an egg in a hot pan and expect it to turn out okay if left alone. Whether the plan is for the egg to be scrambled, over easy or an omelet, it needs tending and care. Without nurturing and a little strategic manipulation, it will likely end up discarded. It’s disappointing when that happens to a perfectly good chicken egg. It’s tragic when it happens to a human being.
