HUERTA, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: A man of destiny. A sword
Last Line: No text-book pedant, but a man.
Subject(s): Huerta, Victoriano (1854-1916); Mexico

A MAN of destiny. A sword.
No old maid's morals dulled his aim.
He nailed the cheat upon the board,
Then, stolid Indian, quit the game.
Nursed in men's blood by iron years,
Though red his hands, though short his span --
We raise our glass in silence: Here's
No text-book pedant, but a man.
