    Bloodhound Bob
    By D-Doc


    They say he sleeps in the crags and brush
    A rifle rests at his boots
    They say he creeps through the shadow of dusk
    Woe to the beast he pursues
    He could track a maggot through slums
    Akin to a bloodhound he be
    He could track a mole through the Earth
    Or a minnow throughout the sea

    A stranger in every sense of the word
    Folks shudder when one utters his name
    His wrath is not wise to incur
    Though he has naught but a horse, a rifle, and fame
    Or infamy, it may very well be
    Depending on where a man stands
    For Bloodhound Bob has hung corpses from trees
    and spilled blood on the distant sands

    His teeth rot and fall from his mouth
    And his beard is entangled with louse
    A plug of tobacco rests in his lip
    And a straw hat covers his brow
    Beasts, varmints, killers and thieves
    Surrender your souls and repent
    For a bottle of whiskey and some tobacco leaves
    Bloodhound Bob will be on your scent

    Sweet. Thanks to everyone who voted for me. This poem was a lot of fun to write and I have more plans for this character.

    By the way, I'd like to suggest that participants consider not voting for their own poem....

    If you're wondering why, then try it out and you'll likely get the point.
