Those who saw the buffaloes by thousands and how they pawed the prairie sod into dust with their hoofs, their great heads down pawing on in a great pageant of dusk,
Those who saw the buffaloes are gone.
And the buffaloes are gone.
—from “Buffalo Dusk” by Carl Sandburg
Happy to say they’re not, in fact, gone for good.

    A bison is what an Australian washes his face in. (say with an aussie accent)

    About Monica’s bison joke — I first heard it from our Australian neighbor, whose accent was good-natured and not quite that thick!
