Scout's Honor

Listening for the sound
Of firing muskets,
Cannonball explosions,
Broken twigs,
Stallion breath
Paid with disease
For services rendered
Avoiding the
Claustrophobic walls 
Of fort school
For the Spirit calling
Choice between the
Ancestors of
White father,
Native mother,
Mother Earth singing 
Her ancient song
To a drum
Inside his chest
Spirit of Father Sky
Raining tormented streams
From his eyes

In memory of Grandfather Pierre
