American folk-heroes

DID you know


Davy Crockett,

once owned

a pet cricket


Davy Crickett?


Parenthetically, it’s OK if you didn’t know. Not many people do.


Maybe, if

the cricket

had stayed on

to fight

at the Alamo,

we would

know more

about him.


But as it is,

Davy Crickett,

turned his tail

  1. I think we’ve learned all we need to know from Mr. Cricket. Maybe it wasn’t brave to run, but it was right not to fight! (Since we were stealing Texas from Mexico) :)
