Injun Incorporated

Lies sold as ceremony,

photo by hungrybison

“traditions” dreamt up by white men in suits,
sold prepackaged,

and branded,
to “new age injuns”.

Salvation,

like fuck,

is but a word.

Souls piled high,
like the bones and skulls gathered from the prairie.
Piled high,
to be ground into powder.
