A Horse Tale

by Wetbelly01

This is a tale about an Outlaw named Jim.
Back when the James Boys and Youngers were doing their thing,
he was out and about doing his!

Now a lot of things that were blamed on the James Gang, are not altogether true.
Some of that stuff was actually done by you know who.

You won't find him in any history pages, unless you dig really deep.
The guy got busted after stealing a horse and leaving it at a House of ILL Repute.

But the man's true crime is far worse, as soon you will find.
His crime is so despicable, that it will truly boggle your mind.

Now while Outlaw Jim was indulging in the 'Female Service'...
His horse outside, about that time was smelling something fine.
As it turned out, two horses down along the hitching rail was a filly that was 'Prime'.

Now when Outlaw Jim decided he wasn't paying and robbed the place instead.
While trying to escape, to his demise, his horse was busy following 'Nature's Course!'

And so his headstone reads as follows..."Here lies Outlaw Jim a really bad man.
He had us outrun by three steps... But his horse was four strokes behind!"
