As “WE” are part of a new millennium you’d… THINK… that the LESSONS of another Nation, [Australian Aboriginal Adoption FAILURES], would alter the LESSENS of a “model” one,
[http://www.nicwa.org/babyveronica/]. This appears NOT to be so TODAY as, AGAIN, a ‘Government’ Judiciary has weakened one of the RACES that MADE SURE that THIS NATION COULD defeat an ENEMY…

These things SHOULD be “SELF EVIDENT”. That the DIVERSITY that HAS made US/ U.S.(of A.) such a uniquely viable NATION. INDIVISIBLE, WITH [LIBERTY], AND JUSTICE, ( NOT JUSTUS) FOR ALL.

With that, the “news” that the Oklahoma Supreme Court withdrew from a case to make way for a NATIVE AMERICAN FATHERED child to become communally erasable by being adopted by a SOUTH CAROLINA,
(read: VERY “CAUCASIAN”.), couple.

Who knows HOW these folks “FEEL” about Native Americans… DID anyone from the CHEROKEE NATION get to POSE ANY SERIOUS QUESTIONS!?!

With that I’ve a “PROSAIC” piece of “thought”.

YOUR BEST LAWS start “WE THE PEOPLE”…
WE knew that before you arrived
family trends go far past steeples
the [TRAILS OF TEARS], WE’VE CRIED

But, for US you’d speak clear German
TWO ‘great’ Wars, “Codes” WE speak EVERY DAY
it’s IMMERSION providing learnin’
LOST, when YOU take “ONE” away

The FIRST ONES, that’s ABORIGINAL
NATIVE Fathers, Daughters, Sons and WIVES
not much longer, that is called VESTIGIAL
since YOUR landing, we fight FOR OUR LIVES

Now, you’ve taken our DEAR VERONICA
instead of ancient song, it’s DIXIE’S “wish”
no tunes played on bird-bone pipes, its harmonicas
no lunch on Buffalo, just the “KETTLED FISH”

“GREAT tan father” promised CHANGE but, IT HASN’T
it’s THEIR LAW, pronounced “JUST US”
maybe ONCE they’d make Great Spirit GLADENED
WE’LL have that “seat” at “FRONT OF BUS”

Leif Erikson even knew to LEAVE… WELL, ENOUGH…ALONE.

What YOU Say…

what YOU say, that you want from me
is what You just can’t return.
what YOU say that you need from me
is what you always spurn.

what YOU say that you’ve done for me
is something you won’t take.
what YOU say that is “Best” for me
the degree past which you’ll break.

what YOU say that you “like’ of me
is what makes you revolt.
what YOU cherish takes from me
the choice to fund the love I had
and, often, prayed to hold.

what YOU say that is “BEST” for me
is everything you can’t stand.
what YOU have others fighting for is what destroys
“THIS LAND…”
