Thoughts of a Confederate Pallbearer

entry picture

You outflanked me a thousand times

But I outlived you

General Sherman. 

And after all the meaningless debates on generalship

I find it far more noble

to be able to draw another breath. 

So I will dance a little jig

as I carry your coffin

straight

to your resting place. 

Confident

You won't outflank me this time.

I read a very exhaustive book on the Indian territories and the incursions and skirmishes under General Sherman. I think this is a brilliant piece, right in the groove as it turns the tables and levels life in a master stroke of irony.
