Yellow Cake

Yellow Cake
Mine the shit out of Lakota land,
I’ve see yellow, blue, and purple,
Where the white man sees yellow,
Cake, let them eat it, Lakota,
Yellow, blue, and purple flowers,

I make crowns for the girls,
Weaving flowers as I plant trees,
I hear a twelve pack is all you need,
Well, I offer more than a cheap ‘gasm,
We hunt the corrupt, in poems, I slay,

Shutting down food, let them eat yellow,
Cake, it’s good for them, they say,
Why, after all, they did wrangle cattle,
Left white heads on the Bozeman trail,
A clean, fresh Pine Ridge sunrise is,

To me, more powerful than a MIRV,
The fusion reaction of the Sun was
    never meant to be tapped by men,
Let me be here, let me plant a tree,
Let me stay until my skin in red,

I hate yellow cake, rots the teeth,
Steal souls and vaporizes towns,
A Nuclear Holocaust is coming,
In my poems, in my heart, I see it,
Death from above, yellow cake.

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.
