Bears Ears—Listening in Pain
Sacred are the lands once protected
by more honorable men…
betrayal stings by smiling lies
Navaho gods are weeping,
for the fork-tongued leader
has betrayed their hearts
Let thunder crash as the deed
becomes known in shameful terms—
greed and deceit are the law of the land
Drums echo in the desert valleys,
vibrating the monuments of the ages
now damp with tears of the betrayed.
As the horrors and heartbreak meet
where arrows once flew…perhaps again?
Fate twists the work of Evil… to wreak revenge.
