A Dream I Had....

I dreamed of a dark green river
was the final barrier
between the world
and the endless west
on the east bank
the Gatling Towns keep watch

Men and Women
with hopeful faces
and tired eyes
pay for passage
cross the Green River
There's no more room
in the civilized world
and now there is the Endless West

The Endless West is ruled by guns
Each gun is named and some have gained fame
The men behind the gun
is often a shadow

In the Endless West
they say time slows down
that the days grow long and hot
and people forget to ask your name
just the place for me
a shadow on a pale horse
a shadow with a gun named Fool
a shadow riding west
hopefully forever
