Susan Hawthorne #303 Tatanka Oyate


the people are there
standing up for Standing Rock
as the government cuts
a pipeline through land
where bison used to roam

the buffalo somehow know
that the Sioux people need
a hand and they come
thousands of buffalo
stampede into the midst

of the protest and people
shout for joy at this
manifestation of hope
the Tatanka Oyate
epiphany in the form of bison
