Hi Ho Silver.
Hi ho Silver.


You may have heard of me

Or perhaps you may have not

But I am the silver Stallion

The lone ranger rode a lot.


Iím not one for complaining

But nowadays of course

That numbnuts, the lone ranger

Would be less famous than his horse!


It was me that did the running

Oh yes I was as fast as lightning

Carrying that obese masked man

Into incidents most frightening.


It was me that faced the bullets

While he crouched down real low

It was him who got the money

I got a bag of oats, to go.


Then there was his Indian side kick

Tonto, what a stupid name

Tracking various bandits

Saying "Kemosahbee, his horse is lameĒ


For that he got a mansion

And unlimited resources

Me? I got a wooden hut

In a home for knackered Horses!

I missed this one when it was posted. I am glad I spotted it while browsing the humor category.

I watched the Lone Ranger and Tonto every Saturday morning when I was a kid.

I liked this humorous look at it from the horse's perspective.

When I was a kid, I thought The 'Lone' Ranger was The 'Long' Ranger.  Your equestrian verses rekindled that dynamic memory...  Regardless, the Lone Banker welcomed the cowboy detective's dollars.  Of course Tonto and Silver were paid minimum wage at best. Well this is America where everything is free.  And now we pause for a commercial break.  Thanks, Bill, for another of your fine vehicles by which we escape boring routine.  Fabulous stuff.   David

Well, this is just a great, rhytmic, tongue in cheek poem. I loved it!     Henry
