A SONNET OF INDIGENOUS TRUTH

CATEGORY

Not to honor but to single me out—

Accepting African American:-

For you, that was what it was all about;

Scoring me as once an enslaved human.

Uprooted and stolen were Blacks like me;

Sardined-canned in bottoms of cargo ships.

Ours arriving here were not those of the free;

No, we were chained and unloaded with whips.

The indigenous people you found here,

You likewise treated as wild animals;

Naveling them with the greatest of fear,

As if you were the devils’s cardinals:-

Severing them from this, their native land,

You now call them Native American.
