Jim: Another Day In The Swamp

Deep in the bayou cypress
Ol’ Sheriff Bartholomew Cyrus
Set out on a mission.
As well as a crime un-tangler
He was a damn good angler
So he went off fishin’.

With brother’s Bill and Tom Choate,
In their flat-bottom boat,
Some catfish he was ready to fight.
“You should try this, I think,”
Bill said with a big wink,
Handing over some lit dynamite.

“This is illegal,” said the lawman,
Tossing away the contraband
That exploded down on the bottom.
“You mean all these dead fish, Chief?”
Tom asked with mock grief,
“It seems you’re the guy who gottem.”

I just can't seem to get past yesterday's Bad Poetry Day theme.
