  JIM  

Say there! P'r'aps
Some on you chaps
        Might know Jim Wild!
Well,--no offence:
Thar ain't no sense
        In gittin' riled!

Jim was my chum
        Up on the Bar:
That's why I come
        Down from up yar,
Lookin' for Jim.
Thank ye, sir! you
Ain't of that crew,--
        Blest if you are!

Money?--Not much;
        That ain't my kind:
I ain't no such.
        Rum?--I don't mind,
Seein' it's you.

Well, this yer Jim,
Did you know him?--
Jess 'bout your size;
Same kind of eyes;--

Well, that is strange:
        Why, it's two year
        Since he came here,
Sick, for a change.
Well, here's to us:
        Eh?
The h----, you say!
        Dead?
That little cuss?

What makes you star,--
You over thar?
Can't a man drop
's glass 'n yer shop
But you must rar'?
        It wouldn't take
        D---- much to break
You and your bar.

        Dead!
Poor--little--Jim!
--Why, thar was me,
Jones, and Bob Lee,
Harry and Ben,--
No--account men:
Then to take him!

Well, thar--Good-bye--
No more, sir,--I--
        Eh?
What's that you say?--
Why, dern it!--sho!--
No? Yes! By Jo!

        Sold!
Sold! Why, you limb!
You ornery,
        Derned old
Long-legged Jim!

            Bret Harte.
