PG Cooper: The Ballad of the Man With No Name (The Dollars Trilogy Poem)

Posted: August 31, 2012 by Daniel Simpson (PG Cooper) in Movie Poems

*I was recently part of a Writer’s Craft class. During our poetry unit, we hard to write a variety of poems about any subject of our choosing. Naturally, all of mine were about movies, and I thought I’d share some of them here.

With a long poncho and short cigar in mouth

Claiming victory as he moves through the South

Won’t know when he comes but you’ll know when he came

You’ll know when you see him he’s The Man With No Name

.

It ain’t for the glory

It ain’t for the fame

It’s for the pleasure

For The Man With No Name

.

Some call him Joe, Manco, and Blondie too

Whatever you pick it’s all the same

There’s only one moniker he knows

That’s The Man With No Name

.

It ain’t for the glory

It ain’t for the fame

It’s for the pleasure

For The Man With No Name

.

He doesn’t know mercy

He doesn’t know shame

He doesn’t know pity

He’s The Man With No Name

.

It ain’t for the glory

It ain’t for the fame

It’s for the pleasure

For The Man With No Name
