The Last Amiable Sheriff

Hi there partner!
I’m Sheriff Steve.
I like riding on my pony
To deter those who thieve.

I only carry a gun
For shooting bottles at the quarry,
But if that makes you nervous
Then I assure you, do not worry.

Because Sheriff Steve has other ways
Of detaining unlawful sorts:
A friendly smile, a stern “now, now,”
And some more witty retorts.

There’s little crime in this town of mine
So I’m doing a good job.

These were the last words of Sheriff Steve
As he greeted Outlaw Bob.
