Billy the Kid
Billy the Kid
They called him “kid” because he talked like a child.
He is child-like in his pedantics,
And that’s handy for pediatrics,
His crazy theatrics, sending fists flying wild.

No one knew him in life: he died too soon.
No one cried at his funeral, or danced at his wake,
No one ever considered his actions or thought of his sake,
And he died as he lived: shooting his gun at the moon.

Conor McGregor, Irish mixed martial artist, was born today in 1988.

Billy the Kid, American outlaw and gunfighter, died on this day in 1881.
