Injustice Must Be Stopped

The black snake is ever advancing,*
Biting down walls of stone. Its followers,
Careless, brainless, have fought for environmental
Racism. Hungry for money, they are. But if
They eat too much cake they will get sick.
The Indigenous peoples choose life over
Cake. They care not for dollars and cents.
The D.A.P.D. comes down with endless
force. Its eyes blazing with fire. But then,
The water protectors still have the chance
To throw water into its fiery eyes.
Then it will give up.
D.A.P.L has gathered every single
Man of non-Indigenous skin for
A follower. Tearing burial sites and
all other Indigenous sacred land,
The black snake is ever advancing.

–Ezra

*black snake refers to D.A.P.L. by Indigenous religion
