Tink's ChapBlog ~ Tales of the Tribe. Mythopoeic Verse
Fiery, fiery, the likened charge,
four hoofbeats change the size of the man.
the circle will shrink but the ring enlarge
enclosing a score on Custer’s last stand.
Solo the kill, then squirts into clusters,
all fallen men, the army of Custer’s.
Violence will grow with personal skill –
Armstrong had four years experience.
Man, for the Sioux, was a slow learned kill,
as experience gives way to impertinence.
And a novelty strike will not even the score,
the unfortunate boons in a war.
Dangling and standing each round was demanding
a final stop and an end to this war.
Short lived the skirmish each life so depending
on living another day more.
No Bluecoat left standing, so goes the ending
of depending on another day more.
But who was attacking and who was defending?
Two sides, the vicissitudes of war.
