If Politicians Were Indigenous

Never saw myself as a politician, nor did I ever witness truthslayers live long,
Instead, mere blemishes from a ball-point pen dictate what lines we walk along,
It isn’t like me to hide what drives me to the brink of resurrecting dead poets,

Dreaming Tupac as President and Palestine liberated,
Remembering Africa rejected Israeli occupation,
Before Zionism landed on Plymouth Rock in 1947,

For some the idea of Saint Cloud and Police Brutality are coincidental,
After talking to confidentials and discovering undocumentation,
Duluth hanging 3 Afro-Americans in 1920 sending postcards as greetings,

Became aware one has to perform rituals at Indigenous landmarks,
Speak Anishinabe in order for Mother Earth to hear,
Gaa wiin daa-aangoshkigaazo ahaw enaabiyaan gaa-inaabid,
