pearl-hart-poet-banditPearl Hart was the “Lady Bandit” who pulled off the last stagecoach heist in the Old West outside Globe, Arizona Territory in 1899. She also was a poet who liked poking her victims in the eye: “While the birds were sweetly singing, and the men stood in a line/And the silver softly ringing as it touched this palm of mine/There we took away their money, but left them enough to eat/And the men looked so funny as they vaulted to their seats.”
