The Legend

Jesse James the Perfect Outlaw 

Jess James,
Rode the wild west in flames,
Some call him a hero outlaw,
His blazing revolver made him a bad criminal

Jesse and his brother Frank James
Poesy hounded down these names
Bloodthirsty military barbarians 
Sometimes I wonder if they were vegetarians

Jess James needed no standoff
Threatening him made him, COUGH! COUGH! 
Shot in the back of the head, 
I'm so glad Robert is also dead.

** for the battle of the CLERIHEW ** 
The Battle - with -  Jesse James~ TAG YOUR IT 

On April 3, 1882, Jesse James was killed by Robert Ford, 
Jess James, is my favorite hero outlaw.

    He was mine too. Anotherone was John Dillinger. I lived about a block and 1/2 from where he was killed. The Biograph Theater. There another movie theater accross the street. Up to this day - every Anniversary, they show the same movies that were showing that day and charge the same prices they did then. Your friend - Lucy

    I just had to read this. I too liked Jesse James. People are not born bad. sometimes peole make them bad. Robert Ford was the dirty little coward - that shot Mr. Howard. Good write. Lucilla

    "That dirty little coward who shot Mr. Howard laid Jesse James in his grave." Have you ever heard "The Ballad of Jesse James"? A number of recording artists have had their versions placed on vinyl records over the years. This was a good write PD.
