Hatfield’s & Mccoy’s

1878 – 1891 American lore
Bitterly feuding – a metaphor
Hatfield’s – West Virginia; the
McCoy’s – Old Kentucky region
Not quite the same anymore.

Both Manny-factured and
sold lightning white, gorilled
in the Un-Civil War
Hatfield’s wore the blue
McCoy’s were Johnny Rebs.

Feud for thought began
as a wedding plan – clans
disagreed, that be about
1873 – but over a hog
Line in the sand – damn!

Tempers escalated after a
Hatfield boy affaired with
the real McCoy girl
Rescue me party ensued
No one got screwed.

1882 came along – McCoy’s
murdered a Hatfield’s son
Was stabbed 26 times
and finished off with
a shot, but not whiskey.

By the end of feud
More than 12 members
died in their boots
Accused stood trial – denial
Descendants signed a truce.

This is a true statement, I read a while ago that there was genetic-ly wrong with the brains of the family, Causing a quick and exposive temper that was not controlable, I will have to see if I could find the artical, It was most intresting though tragic..
