About an Indian

The Lakota

Upon the land, where the buffalo roamed,

A fierce Indian tribe,

Once called home.

The white man dreamed, of this land, Dakota.

Their only problem,

The tribe called Lakota.

They sent the armies, led by Generals.

They wanted this land,

They treasured her minerals.

O’er the land, the wheat would wave,

Beneath it’s soil,

The Lakota’s grave.

Alas he stood, a brave all alone.

He wanted revenge,

On the white man’s wrong.

Within the tribe, he had gained fame.

From a vision of his,

Two Buffalo, his name.

The government ached, for this red man’s hide.

They sent their soldiers,

Far and wide.

They searched for him, in the Dakota maze,

But never understood,

The Lakota’s ways.

The years have passed, They no longer search.

But still are plagued,

By the Lakota’s mirth.
