Shades of Black & Blue



Are we on
the reservation
or not?

Have we become
the latest version
of those
destined
to be caged
unwanted
unneeded
by Mr. Big?

Taking care
of 'biz' at home
now out the door
bigger
fish to fry
in cheaper
climes

What to do?

Many attempts
many failures
to slay the
dark beast
that marks
our door
dragons
have always
been hard
to vanquish
but try
we must

Still the beast
devours
our harvests
builds
golden-plated
armor
its bootprint
leaves ugly
marks and stains
much pain
around our
orbiting satellite

The people
are turned
one against
the other

our unity
thru solidarity
made difficult
but not impossible
by those
who say
they know best
