The 'Poem A Day' Project - Day 54 - Poem by Flying Lemming

The man and his horse rode into town
Strolled up main street and then back down
He tied his horse by a local bar and wandered inside
He was dressed in blue and red
A ten gallon hat was on his head
The chink of his spurs rhythmically followed every stride

The bar went quiet as he walked in
All the eyes were glued to him
He scanned the room checking every face
He walked right up to the bar
Light shining on his sheriff star
As people moved uneasy round the place

‘I’m looking for big bad Jake,
The low down lying cheating snake
Wanted for cattle rustling across the land'
The barman slowly shook his head
‘I can’t help you there’ he said
'As this is 2007 and you’re in southern England'
