Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Your Reservation ... Sir
 
It’s not so long ago
in terms of months and years
America lost its glow
washed in native’s tears

The European’s landed
relieved to have arrived
They quickly then expanded
on plans they had derived

The native folk content
accepting their white brothers
Trading agents sent
soon came many others

Indians ploughed the land
made use of buffalo
Not hard to understand
a good life they could show

Indigenous, reds were
in whites, they saw no harm
They only had one care
live side by side and farm

Explorers’ thoughts and dreams
whites moving on, exploring
Always in large teams
the native’s pleas ignoring

‘Don’t worry,’ whites would say
there’s plenty here for all
Then came the first affray
backed up by bugle call

The best chiefs all rebelled
as all good leaders would
Watching forests felled
to build new towns used wood

The great chiefs knew a fear
held within the soul
The time was coming near
the Paleface had a goal

To share was not whites’ plan
invasion was in mind
Across the land they’d fan
taking all they’d find

From peaceful lives before
to memory resigned
The Iron Horse would roar
a quietness left behind

In time the tribes were driven
far from what they knew
For peace the chiefs had striven
and fought the soldiers blue

Numbers claimed the day
combined with greed galore
White men had their way
great tribes would be no more

Banished to small bases
titled ‘reservations’
The colour of men’s faces
decided on life’s stations

Not two centuries have passed
since those early days
A peace could never last
when man has selfish ways

***
*Author’s Note: The use of ‘white’ and ‘red’
is purely poetic license, used to simplify.
No offence is intended to any tribe
- whether it be American or European.
