The Origin of a Proverb (Address)

address... does the poem make sense? Can you determine from what perspective this is written?


The Origin of a Proverb

Silent
mysterious
deadly?
strong?
seperated
The Iron Horse
locked away
Is he bad?
no clues
surrendered
silent
pale
white
he stands
no good
no good can come
from this.
white man
weak pale
white man
death.
yes, death.
his fate was.
white men
determined pale
white men
surrounding
slaughter
slaughter
everyone is dead
pools of blood
corpses
destruction
murder
murder
stench of rotting
eroding life
the village is gone
never kill a man who says nothing.





Third address (I wanted you to read it AFTER the poem)... Does the tone capture that confused-nightmare feeling?


(Some of you may recognize certain elements of this poem, as it is based on an occurence in a book most of us have read. :) )
