Black Bart, stagecoach robber-poet who plied his trade in the 1870s and 1880s in Oregon and Northern California. After his fourth robbery, he left this poem:
I’ve labored long and hard for bread, For honor and for riches But on my corns too long you’ve tread, You fine-haired sons-of-bitches. Black Bart, the P o 8
Now we know: P o 8 = poet.
