Kung Fu Cowboy has been writing poetry since he was a wee little rascal. Born in San Diego, California, he has enjoyed all the styles and restrictions of poetry from haiku to 10,000 word epic poems. Focusing mostly on lyrics for his music, KFC has been pumping out from 12 to 20 finished songs per year and another 40 or more poems.
Since 1969, when he started writing rock and roll songs, Kung Fu Cowboy has been styling his poetry into lyrics that were personal, thematic, sometimes moralistic, but usually easy to understand without many complex words. This “People Poetry” style makes his lyrics more poetic and his poetry more lyrical. Each writing format has influenced the other into a fun-to-read style of poetry and philosophical slogans.
