As it is

It’s all a bit John Wayne,
sis foot six looking for
someone to blame and
who’s going to argue?

I hide in the coal hole
which hasn’t been used since
the clean air act.

I’m packing it in,
meanwhile
Hopalong’s gone for the beers
and Doc’s racking up the gin.

( sis foot six ) a good measure.
