Historical



Anselm Hollo
and we've always thought of D'Artagnan
as the little guy who can change the gears
of history

if even just a tad
with a little help from his friends

well     how true can that be
this is not unimportant

guess we were a wee bit aroused
seeing those guys jump around
fighting with long knives

which is what the Cheyenne and Lakota
called Custer's Seventh Cavalry

yes Custer wore his hair mousquetaire fashion
as did Cody
Hickok
O-mo-hund-ro
