0035 The Lost Love [16 April 1997]

Author’s note: Once again, I hope this does not offend any Native Americans. This was written from that point of view because I sympathized with it.


 

The people we began to love,
The whites that turned
So savagely against us.
If it was land you craved,
It would be given.
The jewels you dug for,
Would be dug for you.
But instead you turned against us.
Believing we hid what we
Knew not existed.
Then you tore down the trees,
A sacred life sacrificed.
And polluted the land,
With imported monsters.
Then you built great cities,
That stole your souls.
