Pow Wow, Friday the 13th

This is war,

I lie wounded on wintery ground,
With hundred of corpses around,
Many wounded crawl helplessly around,
On the blood red snowy ground,

War,

Cries of the (ha, ha) suffering sound,
Cries for help to all their dead moms,

War,

Many hours of music,
Many drops of blood,
Many shivering and now I am dead,
And still we must never give up,

War, (1)

Skinny, Blue shirt, black tie, dark glasses,
Sharp moves to the right, in step with drum,
Sharp jabs at my heart, my car is dirty,
My bed is full of bugs, drive right, cut hard,

Close my eyes, I am young brave, a man,
Darkness of my eyelids, red cloud,
I do not want to be awake,
Let me dance my dream,

My heart bleeds red, here on the Rez,
Where the sky is an ocean,
South Dakota Gaza strip,
Warriors of the Lakota Nation,

Gaza, Gaza, don’t you cry,
Palestine will never die,
Gaza, Gaza, don’t you cry,
Palestine will never die,

My children, my children,
The wind makes the head-feathers sing,
The wind makes the head-feathers sing,
My children, my children,

Skinny blue lone wolf, war,
Alone in a circle of ghosts,
Modern youth, lightening bolt,
Torn between an electric railroad,

And a buffalo skull teepee,
A common dream, an age of justice,
War, not peace, sharp cut to the right,
Faster, faster, faster,

Crack the skull of the white man,
Death to the White Man, white ghost,
I am not a domesticated animal,
I am not a show, this is war,

In my Jesuit cell, Constantine’s Sword,
Under the shadow of the cross,
I speak to spirits, Gaza, Gaza,
Don’t you cry, Palestine will never die,

My children, my children,
The wind makes the head-feathers sing,
The wind makes the head-feathers sing,
My children, my children,

Your dance is war, wake up Lakota Nation,
Dance sharp like Skinny Blue Wolf,
Dark eyes, sharp black hair, tight moves,
He’s doing it right, cut right,

Crack the white skull,
Drive out the settler,
Restore the Black Hills,
To their rightful owners.

(1) Burzum, War

About kayaerbil

I am a Berkeley educated chemistry Ph.D. who is moving into the area of working on developing appropriate technology for communities that are subjected to socio-economic oppression. The goal is to use simple and effective designs to empower people to live better lives. Currently, I am working with Native Americans on Pine Ridge, the Lakota reservation in South Dakota. I am working with a Native owned and run solar energy company. We are currently working on building a compressed earth block (CEB) house that showcases many of the technologies that the company has developed. The CEB house is made of locally derived resources, earth from the reservation. The blocks are naturally thermally insulating, keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Eventually, a solar air heater and photovoltaic panels will be installed into the house to power the home and keep it warm, while preserving the house off the grid. A side project while in Pine Ridge is a solar computer. I hope to learn about blockchain encryption software for building microgrids. In addition, it is an immediate interest of mine to involve local youth in technology education.
