GHOST DANCE (To Day Was A Good Day To Die)

By Oliver Plaice, www.PoetryPoem.com/oliverspoems    Unlock all Features - Upgrade to Poetry Prime

Today I danced a thousand times

and in that time I saw the thunder bird

he told me things, secret things

the drums sounded and the war cries echoed…

I danced a thousand times

while the camp fire burnt bright

my ghost dance, went into dream time…

the great spirit spoke to me in silent words…

He showed me a vision of what was to come

many blue coats would ride into our camp

shooting our people, women, children old men

I chanted in agony at these scenes, and danced on…

I danced a thousand times, and my blood ran red

this vision turned, I saw soldiers dead, limbs cut away

their horses flying through the air, some dead, some panicking

the great spirit told me "Today Was a Good Day to Die!"

After many fights with the blue coats, we chased them…

surrounding them, they dismounted and formed a full circle

yellow hair could clearly be seen fighting throughout this battle

that day all the tribes fought as one, we knew no fear we were brave
We fought until all the blue coats were dead except one, yellow hair -
we just rode in and finished him off.  To Day Was a Good Day To Die.
