Fossil expedition

I've only written one other poem from the point of view of a historical character. I think Custer did sometimes escort fossil-hunters. As a character portrait it's not too far off the truth (Custer had a problem with authority), though I made up the details. It wasn't meant to be a comment about lit profs. The ending's rather too pat for my current tastes.
