Die Happy With All Your Poems Pigeon-Penned!

Die happy

with your boots on

and all of your poems


As the Lone Ranger

of Western fame

often said to Tonto.

Who then the stole his boots

and chopped off his head!


Enough said

about the Lone Ranger’s

now lifeless head!


As for his horse, Silver, or was it Scout?

Well, Tonto just stuffed his head

after he knew

he too was quite dead!


Is this a poem or prose?

Or do I suppose, Tonto,

that I too am

losing my head?


This cartoon

is not

a likeness of a horse

in any way.

It is a jackass!

Much like the poet

who poorly pigeon-penned

this pathetic, pitiful piece …

as a platitude

aimed at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA!


Go Nittany Lions

  5. I was glad you referred to Pittsburgh. I was beginning to worry about the whereabouts of my head.

    1. You left your head in Pittsburgh?
      Is it high on a hill calling to you?
      Me? I just left my first wife there: whereabouts unknown.

  8. I believe what the Lone Ranger said was ‘hi ho Silver away’.
    The guy that played Tonto was born and raised in Ontario, Canada. I believe it was on the Six Nations Reserve.
    But the poor pigeon will never write again…hehehehe!

      Right! And Tonto’s final words to the Lone Ranger were:

      Me Tonto! You dead Lone Ranger… you greedy pale face Washicun “who steals the fat” no more!

        They took him off suicide watch; he had all kinds of bedsheets and ropes in his cell; the camera facing his cell didn’t work; and the guards whose job was to check his cell every 20 minutes fell asleep and didn’t find him dead for three hours.

        Yes! It was a clear case of suicide!
