The Bhoys and I

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!
