Bewildering Stories

Soldiers of Heaven Came

Thomas R.

In Gettysburg they did tell
Of how they came
At first some said from hell
Those fighters from anothers fame

Appearing from out of the mist
They spoke in Chinese
Led by a lady of iron fist
Becoming more numerous than trees

Some said they were Tai'Ping
From another Civil War far away
Whoever they were they became king
If only for a day

Mysteriously they vanished that night
None understanding why
All baffled by their fight
Yet the events power none could deny

Soon after the war did end
With no explanation how the Soldiers of Heaven came
Yet all us slaves now love this happy dividend
Let our freedom give them lasting fame
