Another Day More.

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.
