The New Sheriff 
By Elton Camp
The election had been just the week beforeSheriff Johnson now held the office no moreSome the new sheriff didn’t know how to take“I just hope we haven’t made a big mistake.”On the very day the new term was to begin,Sheriff Roberts entered the office with a grin“Since none of you deputies voted for me Now you’re every one out of jobs you see.”With a voice and actions just that roughThe new sheriff was going to be toughCrime would never again come to paySheriff Roberts had now come their wayThe sheriff then strapped on a black gun“I’ll soon have all the crooks on the run.”It took Sheriff Roberts only a little whileTo hire new deputies with a sneering smile“Every one of you boys will do what I sayOr I’ll fire your tails without any delay.”The sheriff had been in office only a week When a fight started at the bar by the creek Sheriff Roberts roared up in a big cruiser Inside the bar stood an enormous bruiser The sheriff rushed right on insideAnd slugged the guy hard in his sideWhen another fighter the sheriff sawIt was wham and pow right to his jawThe sheriff looked around with a sneer Quick as a flash, the room did clear When to law and order there occurred a threat,The sheriff was there to curse, fight, and sweatAll could see that the crime rate went downFrom the time the new sheriff came around
