Prairie Dog And Buffalo

by tapster@mindspring.com 

Prairie dog and buffalo roamed northern plains

tiny and large enjoy days in copious innocence

until poison, arrows, and bullets took control

more animals forced to lose sanctified knoll

Faint smiles, funny faces and mounds kiss sun

inhaling what's left of their home as they wait

for more men in government uniforms to rush in

those we vote for, murder indiscriminately

Insurrection comes as we lie down peacefully

near satiated buffalo on large lonesome plain

horns curved and ready, fat prairie dog paw

nibbles on the grain of sweet Mother Earth

Staring back at atrocities they have no power

they are more victims, more innocents

ready to withstand onslaught of modern man

waiting to disappear like those before them

2000 By Diana Moreton.
