Butch Cassidy (Blogophilia 22.6)




Who are those guys?
The ones chasing us?
Just because we stole money
From the one percent (or less)?

They don't need it.
They steal it from
The peasants laboring 
Under them.

Grant, Taft and Roosevelt 
Pinkerton and Union Pacific
All tried to find us
And failed.

They were but raindrops
Falling on our heads
We had their lades
And their money.

Life loves the 
Liver of it.
We did our best
And left a legend.

  5. To be both famous, and infamous, one has to do some good and some bad in life. Both count.
