No Honor Out West

Expect no honour amid murdering scum,

even if you clam up to a like-same chum,

who ignores the peril close to their nest,

you think bosom buddy of ilk-alike chest,

bad chests never bore shiny tin badges.

A dog who fights for any scrap it cadges,

a cur's way beyond human law and rules.

Don't trust a baddun's fist from that fool,

one born dumber than yer average mule;

this disperate desparado, Mr "Bob" Ford,

desperately, clutching, for Judas' reward.

Cowardly back shot, low-down the style,

evil repute Western folk stock-sure revile.

Love the direct style. Kinda.....in your face.

 

Did you mean the mayor of Toronto Ford? Who's worse? Him, or those that vote him in?

Good one Frank. My great grandfather was on a train that was robbed by the famous outlaw Jesse James. I remember him telling the story and the James boys weren't exactly gentlemen. Grandpa Grimes loved telling the story.i

Jesse James is a legend now, but from all I hear he was a bit of a nasty character. Maybe Mr. Ford did the people of his time a favour ....

Drown your sorrows in drink, by all means, but the real sorrows can swim
