   He came dead last at West Point in his class,
   led his men to Little Big Horn en masse.
      But it was Custer who fell
      and Crazy Horse they tell
   was from that day on known as Kicking A$$!

Thank you, Kim. I had to use the $ symbol because if I use an S it gets bleeped out by the Soup software. How absurd!

He was quite the arrogant character and his his stubborness got him into a world of hurt. Congrats on your win. I enjoyed seeing this one.

You too Jan. I was happy to learn a new form - clerihews are fun!

Keith, congrats on your placement in my contest! I didn't know Custer finished last at West Point. No wonder his "last stand" was really his last. An excellent Clerihew! Love, Kim

Thanks Jan. I guess some might prefer "Native Americans" but that just didn't sound right or fit the context!
