The Devil's Dictionary: Hatchet

by Ambrose Bierce
HASH
HATRED

HATCHET

-n.

A young axe, known among Indians as a Thomashawk.

"O bury the hatchet, irascible Red,
For peace is a blessing," the White Man said
The Savage concurred, and that weapon interred,
With imposing rites, in the White Man's head.

- John Lukkus
