Chicagoetry: The Conquest of Shit Creek

The Conquest of Shit Creek

Black Hawk said "Fuck
This, I want

My land
Back." Beaubien

Thought he'd
Pulled a fast

One, got the Heathens
Drunk, got 'em to sign away

Their land.
Earlier in the day, the Natives

Guffawed that Whitey
Wanted to scalp 'em for

Creek! Only the French

Could put a whorehouse
On every bank! "Then they'll get us

Get good and
Drunk . . . "

Dissolve, months later:
Black Hawk is like

"Fuck this, I'm taking
It all

Back." They
Wiped him

Out, but he
Made his
