Three Limericks

KELLY AND MULDOON Kelly and Muldoon went to rob a bank Both had been drinking all day and they stank They sat counting the money Folks thought it was so funny When police hauled them off to the drunk tank... BREAKING BAD You've probably heard of Walter and Jesse Made blue meth and had it down to a tee The cartel were enraged So hitmen were engaged As a warning hung them both from a tree... GUNFIGHT AT THE OK CORRAL The Clanton gang went to Tombstone to kill Doc Holiday, Morgan, Wyatt and Virgil Gunfight didn't go their way They were having a bad day Now they are all at rest up at Boot Hill... Written 31st August 2020.

I hear funeral plots on Boot Hill are still selling for just $10. LOL I visited Tombstone years ago and saw the gunfight recreated for tourists. Enjoyed all of the limericks, Tom! Thanks for the laughs, Carolyn

Thank you Kim, things were changing fast, the wild west was being tamed with law enforcement agencies like the Pinkertons tracking outlaws and helping to bring order to the wild west. Tom
