Sherman Alexie

Listening to you Sherman Alexie
Each act of incest or alcoholism
Traces back to “bad acts of Cavalry”
Serving white man’s evil colonialism.
Excuse me for pointing out the lie, but
Legacies of conquerors long dead?
Feed not my guilty conscience such glut.
Past history falls on no modern head.
In childhood I saw my father named
The label of “dirty d.p.” and stranger
Yet today we are players in the game
Each respect gained from action, not anger.

Nations whose culture, artist, and lover
Dwell most on setback never recover.
