Space Cowboys - Captain Malcolm Reynolds

"How can we win, when fools can be kings?" - Muse

Hoof beats on steel plating
Unnatural and archaic beasts
Playing host to new ages
Or old ages made new again

A holstered pistol
Open and displayed
Respected and honorable arrogance
It says a few things
Try me
Fight me
Fear me

Permanent smirks
Leather hats to hide them
Snarky and reserved
Serious and boisterous
Gloves to fit what situation dictates

World to world
Always the same faces
Fighting no more than you have to
No less than needs call
Unless it's funny
...It's always funny

Taking a bullet
Being hated
Loving never acting
Pushing away

Helping the helpless
Fighting the ruthless

Doing it for those you love
