Letter To Custer


Custer, you arrogant moron
Civilised culture does not grow
From the shed blood of whomever
You consider inferior
Nor from the blood of soldiers
You sacrificed for genocide

How can anyone call you,
An egotisical racist,
A hero worthy of honor,
You who thought the indigenous
Were not quite human enough
To organize a victory?

What honor could there ever be
For a gloryhound such as you?
You might be a perfect icon
For this country's hero worship
And yet I find another word
To be more appropriate... LOSER!
