Cowboy Sunset

Cowboy sunset

Two rode out that fateful day,
One on a black horse and one on grey.
The air was clear;
The sun shone bright,
But only one would ride back that night.
I watched from an empty stall
As the wind began a mournful squall.
Dusk drew near;
The sky bled red;
One came home and one lay dead.

  1. I guess these cowboys were really serious about settling their disputes.
