The Bhoys and I
set down for this portrait --
thought you'd like it real fine.
We're wearin our best duds.
Me, Butch, enthroned
on the right, derby hat at
a slick angle, and Sundance
settin in a wicker job at left,
Ben "Tall Texan" Kilpatrick
settin in the middle, weighin
down a rickety ole chair. Behind,
mindin our backs, en-bloomed
is Kid Curry and fobbed News Carver.
I confess we left our sixguns
a-layin on the photographer's
antimacassar by the aspidistra after
blowin smoke from the muzzles.
See our gold watch chains shinin
and our faces a-beamin more than
on any Post Office wall:
Five desperadoes is all!
