Doc's a Silver Buckle First Prize Winner

Doc Mehl has done it!  He held on 'til the horn, and brought home the silver buckle!  At the 2009 National Cowboy Poetry Rodeo in Montrose Colorado, contestants line up and pay their entry fee (just like a real rodeo…), all for a chance to take home the winnings.  And yessiree, Doc was a winner.  A silver buckle winner!  Check out the bling!  No sir, Doc won't be needing the suspenders any more, now that he's got this salad-plate sized buckle to wear front and center.  And just which poem put him over the top?  Which poem assured the prize?  It was "The Great Depression."  (Well, of course it was.)
