Hmmm...very interesting. The rhyme and meter was very catching. Is this a true story?

I rather enjoyed this piece. It kind of grows on you. The more you read it, the better it gets.
I can almost hear the twang of a steel guitar in the background. Very entertaining, and well done.

Sorry I mispelled his name. Still, this is good.
An interesting tale and unique in its setting and flavor. I expecially lilke the refrains.

Great poem! I can hear this as a country ballad... nicely done!
I really like the flow of your poem and your word choice that captured the western setting. What a great way to record the event from the early history of Holbrook, AZ!
I really enjoyed this poem. Quite different from the norm, but a fun read.
