HE GONE INJUN



Bergdahl went injun
just like dances
with wolves

I went injun
in the Black Hills
and Badlands
the drums,
the history,
the present

Going injun means
you don't follow the
party line anymore
the Army story

Those on horses
and helicopters
are sent to kill
and steal lands

they demonize
the 'savages'
the 'commies'
the 'terrorists'
works every time

Bergdahl has stories
to tell
but who will listen?

The media and right-wing
charge
against Bergdahl
is intended to make
others fear doing
similar things
makes the public
afraid to hear
or feel
his words

My bet is Bergdahl
made some friends
amongst the 'enemies'
very christian
thing to do

His captors ended
their video with
the words
"Don't come back
to Afghanistan"

They were talking
to us
but Obama
and Mr. Big
decided to keep
10,000 US troops
and thousands
of NATO soldiers
and corporate
mercenaries there

The release of Bergdahl
a public relations stunt
to make the American
people think the war
in Afghan town
is over

in all the clamor
we miss the story
about
troops staying
in the dusty
'war zone'

The magician
at it again
got to watch
both his hands

Bergdahl gone
injun
the modern version
