Jimmy’s Boss

Banner November 2020

Jimmy’s boss was a nefarious soul.

He dragged everyone down.

That’s why Jimmy didn’t care

When the boss got killed,

Having fallen off his horse,

In an accident caused by

A plague of blue tail flies.

That’s why in Jimmy’s hometown,

Since then, locals have tended to be

Just a smidge more

On the Doughty side

Than they once were.

Jimmy’s boss’s name

Appears to have been

Erased from folks’

Collective memory.

Seems there’s a bit

Of a stigma attached

To having to answer

To the blue tail flies.
