    mine though it was really quite a bit off from the actual event that fostered it.  However since when do poets worry about historical accuracy?

    Small epiphany for me this morning (and I know this is a bit off-topic but then I frequently wander far afield) is that a Bowie knife does not make a good back scratcher.  
    Then there is my second epiphany:  if you do use a Bowie knife for a back scratcher, do not try to remedy the situation by dosing your back with alcohol.  the next time I do something similar, I will retain the alcohol for internal application.

    However quite an enlightening morning for me so far

      I'm sorry for laughing, but dear gussie I needed that ;-)

      I hope your back is alright now.  Guess we're never too old to learn new things as I can speak from my own experiences.  

      And you make a valid point: Poets (and Hollywood I might add) seem not to worry about historical accuracy.
