The Legend of Hap Hazard


Hap Hazard was a cowboy who lived outside Fargo.
Fell asleep on his horse, ended up in Key Largo.
Met a lady gambler who was a bit of dangerous cargo.

Dirk Bentley, who was descended from gentry,
Seduced Hazard’s lady; a salacious breaking and entry.
Hap was working a nightshift as a marina sentry.

Dirk met his metaphorical Waterloo
when he encountered the dukes of Hazard –
“Put ‘em up! Put ‘em up!”

(Guess I’m getting punchy….)

Hap took his horse and his lady north by northwest.
You probably know how Hazard’s legend ends.
If not, you can probably guess.
