Charles E. Boles, aka Black Bart, was an outlaw who robbed stagecoaches in the Wild West. 

He was considered a sophisticated ‘gentleman bandit’ and was known for leaving poems behind after his robberies, like: 

Here I lay me down to sleep
To wait the coming morrow,
Perhaps success, perhaps defeat,
And everlasting sorrow.
Let come what will, I’ll try it on,
My condition can’t be worse;
And if there’s money in that box
'Tis munny in my purse.
— Black Bart
