Daniel Boone

Atop the pate of old Daniel Boone,

   Was worn the pelt of a deceased raccoon.

      Despite his bizarre chapeau, with him you daren't trifle,

         Since Dan'l was quick-on-the-draw with his Kentucky rifle!

Entry for Kim Merryman's "Cleri-who?" Contest (28 May 2015)

    G'day Robert... why did these frontiersmen wear animals on their head? You'd think they would make a good target for a hunter lying in wait. Thank you Robert - Lindsay
