Yesterday is much clearer As the future is drawing nearer. The histories we have rehearsed Over time have become reversed. It should make us very sad; What was good has become bad.
The bad guys were the Indians And the good guys Caucasians And they were always right Because they were always white. The Red Man was a villain Because he was an Indian; And that was never corrected. The name an invader selected.
These were people born here Defending land they held dear Because they had hunted And were never really wanted. The invaders called them savage Their women okay to ravage Because they didn’t have Jehovah To issue them a binding mitzvah.
There were so few invaders So at first they were persuaders. But after putting out some feelers They chose to become stealers. They declared the natives sinners And thus became the winners. The natives hadn’t learned to read So the invaders ignored all their needs.
The invaders were prepared to fight To deny the natives their rights So, the invaders created paper laws Thus natives couldn’t tell what they saw. Suddenly the noble savage was a crook. The invaders gloated over what they took; Stole native’s possessions from their hands And declared it all as the invader’s land.
This is the Danes and Angles back when And the story happened all over again. But once the battle victory is scored The native’s birthright is not restored. The invaders cover up the tragedies With inaccurate tales and call them history.
