0159 The Savage Ones [21 January 1998]

Author’s note: This was written nearly 17 years ago but I somehow find it valid still today. #NoDAPL #StandingRock

Why have you been so savage?
We were willing
To share Mother Earth
And to share our wealth.

You call us the savage ones,
When in reality it is you
Who be the savage ones
You speak of.

Your greed has taken your love.
Your need for more
Took away every bit
Of you that had been human.

You destroyed Mother Earth’s ground,
Tearing apart her beauty,
Tearing apart your soul
The heart that you hold so dear.
