Just To Demonstrate That I Really Do Love John Wayne

                                    THE DUKE

                                    Boule de Suif, the comfy whore

                                    Whose loving nature is used and spat on

                                    By upright crooks:  It bears re-telling.

                                   

                                    As, for example, in John Ford's Stagecoach

                                    Where from the burning, blowing desert

                                    Ambles at last the one true man

                                    Who knows the loving heart when he meets it

                                    And values nothing else.

 

                                                                              Say, Pilgrim,

                                    Now that you've travelled the century,

                                    Have you found a man more righteous than

                                    This tall galoot with his Winchester?
