Bleached like ivory

We where bred into white people. while people. white people

Mummy, why did the white people do that to us?
Because they where stupid, Because they could.
Where did the color go?

Melted into grey streets and brown smoke stacks - Leached.
Like drift wood on the ocean current, to the sand,
baked in the hot sun - Bleached.
Why does that make the white people stupid?

Because they are blind to how things are dreamed to be,
You can't leach the essence of how things are
if they wanted to see. to see. to see

In the river one sunset, I spoke to the rainbow
We chatted, about the state of the world,
Things are not much fun some times you know. you know. you know
The serpent knows. All color. Isssssssss

Hi in the sky, grey ivory bright. Hurts the eyes.
Eagle circles, sees, knows forever. forever. forever
Without stupid blind color matters on the mind.

The woosh of wind. Still. Breath of trees above the canopy.
Eagle knows justice will come to those who chose
to dream of smokestacks and monolithic phallus office block.
Stupid. Stupid. Stupid

So my child, not to worry. The ivory skin issssssss.
Our camp fires will burn forever.
Rainbow will wait and chat.
Eagle watches and knows justice is OUR dream.
