The Death of Dylan Doe
Dylan Doe, of Dill & Doe, was Delwin Dolan’s future foe,
for fate foresaw the death of Doe, by Dolan’s deadly basswood bow.
The duo dated Darla Deaux, though neither man was s’pposed to know.
O woe was Doe when Darla dear made clear that Dylan had to go.
So Doe, to show his Dolan spite, hit Delwin D. with all his might.
Though Delwin seldom held him in a state of utter hate,
the blow that Doe had dealt him was decidedly too great,
and thus that fuss inspired a fight which should have set the matter right.
A swing was swung,
combatants battling, black and blue,
were quick to kick, concuss, and chew;
their hatred grated through and through.
They pounded, pasted, poked and smacked;
then clouted, pouted, clashed and thwacked,
though both were busted, bleeding, choked;
they then withdrew, perplexed, provoked,
and that’s when Delwin drew his bow;
then let the narrow arrow go.
Across the fertile field it flew until it ran old Dylan through!
His final words were very few: “Oh Darla, dear, I do love you.”
The funeral father, friends and crew then bid his bod’ a fond “adieu;”
and Del’s now deep in legal stew for sins against the soul he slew.
