Jack was sleeping on the upper bunk when they came
to blows at the bend in the river.
The voices carried all the way to the bunk house
as the stranger beat the cowboy who wouldn’t budge
from his opinion as to why he was bleeding from the breaking
The stranger had a bone to pick with the cowboy about the bloom left
on the table from the broken coffee cup, and his eyes bore into
those of the cowboy trying to get him to confess.
Jack kept quiet as he knew who left the bloom on the table
from the wet coffee cup…he didn’t budge from the upper bunk
because the stranger would make HIM bleed if it were known
it was HE that did break the strangers boring coffee cup
that left the bloom on the table.

Oooh…that was good. Very clever of you. So did the cowboy end up getting his ass kicked anyway? Ha..ha..

Oh, I don’t think he got his ass kicked…Murphy’s law.
