Black Bart (limerick)

Charles Boles was the famous Black Bart

Who uplifted stage-robbing to an art

With a hood and a duster

He proved he could muster

Enough money to bed down a tart

    Your humorous last line speaks of the truth; he actually made comparatively little after all the stages he robbed. Good post, JW.

      Wasn’t hardly worth the effort, although he’s been a footnote in history ever since. Thanks for your response, AJT.
