Bounty Hunter Born and Bred

Bounty Hunter Born and Bred

An excellent movie, I just had seen
About someone who was very mean;
Started to think and time did devote
And then this poem, I finally wrote.

Tom Horn will surely die today;
For his dirty deeds now must pay;
Was a bounty hunter born and bred 
And pretty soon, He would be dead.

Was a person that they all had hated;
In saloon for a while, He waited;
Then took a short single breath
And shot the poor soul to death.

Did decide to set Horn's life free
By hanging him from a tall tree;
Shot so many people who did die;
For his death, this is reason why.

James Thomas Horn
Norview High School, Sophomore
Norfolk, Virginia

Wrote this after seeing the movie                                                                     Tom Horn and was 15 years old
just after my dad was killed on
the Aircraft Carrier Intrepid.
