A decade ago at a small social gathering in Denver, I heard Slim Pickens recite a long, hilarious, dirty poem about cowboys. A few years ago, reviewing a collection of cowboy poetry, I complained that I'd never found a copy of the poem Slim recited, and by then Pickens himself had left us for distant ranges. The column found its way to a cowboy performer named Val Geissler, then living near Missoula, Mont. He called me and said he knew the poem and would write down a copy for me.
