Where have they gone?

My heros of lore,

Were they killed off and burried,

Are they gone for sure?

What happened to them?

Those that were quick,

Those that were strong,

And oak thick?

To rest in peace,

seems like a curse,

For a hero who would,

Give to the poor from my purse!

Have they gone to heaven?

Not Pecos Bill,

He tried that one out,

And went on down hill.

And what of the knights?

All that hewing and hacking,

Heavens already full

Of all the bodies they've been stacking!

So next time you look,

For your heros of yore,

Try looking around

Their doing stuff like never before!
