Excerpt from Poems of the Turf and Other Ballads The Race For A Life ... Or The Feat Of Tecumseh When the weather's down to zero, in most every country town, It's in the store or hostlery that the talkers gather 'round; One fact I've always noted, - happens nine times out of ten, - That horse talk seems to take the lead among all sorts of men. There're some you hate to listen to - you wish they'd not begun; You yawn and draw a good long breath when their tiresome yarn is spun. And then there're others that you'd sit and listen to all night - Somehow they interest you in a way you seem to like. This was the case the other night at Sherman's new Hotel - The horsemen they had gathered in and soon commenced to tell About what they had seen and done so wonderful, you know. But soon the crowd began to yawn, and said they'd better go. Just then Ben Saunders opened up, - old Ben was seventy-two, But when he told a story, you bet we'd hear him through! - So, when Ben started up and said, "If it wasn't late, you know, I'd tell you of a scrape I had some fifty years ago!" That settled it: we all just vowed the story he must tell. I'll give you all the facts he told, but I can't tell them quite so well. I told you Ben was seventy-two - he didn't look it, though, Although his hair and whiskers were as white as driven snow. He was straight as any arrow; his eye was clear and mild, With a roguish kind of twinkle, like some little, happy child. I have watched all kinds of people and have studied many men, But I never yet have meta man that equaled Uncle Ben.
