Reel Life

The John Wayne American,
Is not truly a U.S.
Institution
Only a ghost of that
Cowboy who once was.

In truth we're
Not rugged individuals,
But rather
one of many
Who
need.

You have a gift.

The title put the whole thing into perspective. So much impact in the final line. Nicely done.

THank you, Carolina. I am a lover of poetry, but it always takes me quite a while to develop a poem to where I like it. I'm usually of the thought that like Hemingway nothing is done until it has been edited at least 10 times! :-)
