Word of the Day: Vex

Zoomed up with steer horns on his car

Left it at the curb, strolled into the bar

“Howdy partners, my name is Tex”

Hands on hips, muscles flexed

“Can I get a drink?” He queried the man

“Sure thing, bud, I do what I can”

Tex leaned on the bar, sat on the stool

Sweat from his glass started to pool

“So, where ya from”, barkeep asked, perplexed

Strangers caused the locals to vex

Look down their noses, over their specs

“Not to worry, barman, not going to stay,

Just want a cool drink, I’ll be on my way”.
