The code of the West

Goes something like this:


“To get the man first,

With bloodlust and thirst,

A look of blood in his eyes.



The total surprise.



The last man left standing alive.”


As best said by one,

Who lived by the gun,


Un hombre que tiene

Nueve stigmata.


Nine lives, had Elfego Baca.
