Treaty in the Dirt

The Treaty in the dirt

After the signing
Of the Treaty in the dirt
No more killing
No more men got hurt

Standing Elk, Little Wolf, and Running Dog
Retired to their teepee
No more fighting
Just making whoopee.

(As a side note)
Is the plural of Papoose
Papeese?
For goose
Its geese
Jus Wonderin.

The Col. And his sidekick
With his signed treaty in the sand
Xd by three Indian chiefs
With Peace near at hand

Could now relax
And enjoy the fame
Of his part of the signing of the treaty
Out on that Dakotah Plain.

Five men at this historical moment
Each playing a small part
In the History of the plains
Was a definite start.
