Pinkerton Lawman

The Pinkertons became the crux of what became the Secret Service.  Their storied history is often looked these days.

Pinkerton Lawman
by Michael Doyle

A snake isn't hard to find
In the what that's left behind
When you flip over every rock
And God knows how silver always talks

A six gun preacher walks with intensity
Into the midst of a tent city
Boldly stating his stoic proclamation
That he has come in duty for his nation

A wanted war criminal will be hung
Until his strong neck will be wrung
Such was the ending nature of an uncivil war
For those still standing who would fight some more

With a trigger finger held ever lightly
The bad man refused to go to death quietly
And in so doing sealed his own fate
Quick as a wink, he met the reaper on this date

Never mess with a Pinkerton lawman
For justice will be served as only he can
Those too violently disposed too meeting their surprise
Will just as suddenly and fatally meet their demise
