The Fastest Guns

Many men in the West

lived by the gun.

Tyro was only one,

he faced each job

when called upon

had never run away

from a call-out.

The day was hot

his aim preset,

he wiped a bead of sweat

eyes narrowed, brows furrowed.


Tyro was firm of step

he had to do what

he had to do - yep

his kind knew the code,

hit the appointed road

at his due time.

Heard the chime

his hand on gun went tense,

he saw an awesome expanse

before him loom, one enormous fence!


Tuson Paint Sprayers would face it

as their ad said they're the fastest

in the West at doing what they did the best.
