Dirty Dan Mcguire
Author: Mark Spencer


The terror of the old west
Was Dirty Dan McGuire.
With a six gun he was the best,
Like lightning he could fire.

No one dared to cross his path,
The thought made people shudder.
'Cause Dirty Dan hadn't had a bath
Since the day he shot his mother.

One day there came a gunman
With a custom forty-four.
Folks said it was Dirty Dan
That he came gunning for.

It wasn't long before they met
Out on that street of mud,
A bounty hunter from the east
And an outlaw caked with crud.

Dan reached for his six gun
As the gunman fell down dead.
Not a single shot was fired
Is what a witness said.

The doctor found out soon enough
What really killed this man.
The feller made one fatal mistake,
He stood down wind of dirty Dan

Hey, read this, Outrageously, entertaining!!!!!!!!!!!

Mark, what a surprise you are, you show such humor and light headedness. Love all your work, sincere and true, but this, this one showes another side of you! I read this poem and without thinking, I added the music from the song, "RINGO" by Lorne Green of Boanza fame. It was a perfect match. Its good to laugh Mark!

My thanks to you.
