Only A Snippet From History - Poem by Joyce Hemsley

A young Brooklyn man
'Billy The Kid'
Was sentenced to death
~~ For murder ~~
He escaped the punishment
By murdering again, but
This was in vain.
He was still on the run.

One County Sheriff
'Saw red' it is said!
And using a gun
Shot Billy dead.

The history of Billy
Is detailed with care.
This is only a snippet
I do declare.
