Subject: Follies of the Past

Across the wide midwestern plains-
Oglalla bands once roamed.
Nomadic tribesmen on the move-
The land they called their own.

And farther South, Apaches, too…
Once roamed the barren sand.
As vanished, as the buffalo-
From this, their native land.

The Utes, Comanche, Nez Perce’
And half a hundred more-
Have joined the bison herds in death.
And no one keeps the score…

And ere I put my pen away-
Ere the last die, be cast-
I’ll toast the things we did not learn-
From follies of the past.
