Gallows Humor

 
 
Have you ever noticed that in every
movie taking place in the Old West
the town grunts have to build a
new gallows necessary in hanging  
the hero who is railroaded by
a rich dude who owns the biggest
ranch west of the Mississippi?
 
Seriously?  
 
Back then, they hung some
poor shmuck every other day!
 
Hoestly, have you ever seen
a protagonist gunfighter in
a Hollywood or Spaghetti western
who was well hung?
 
Guess that's what happens  
when you use the same (t)rope
too many times
It wears out
 
I'ma frayed I just wasted
your time with this poem
