POEM: Never Agin

They lived in an ethic
Spacious enough
To ford seven generations
Rooted in immemorial
And in of the presents
Their will yielding
To a vision enduring beyond
True sojourners of
Not a cataclysm of transients
Who dis honor from wince they come
Going long with scalping the
As less than face value
In efface of repulsing toupees
And inescapable reservations
Of ever elusive promise
From ambitious suit her
Utterly redressed for
Immutably miss led
From all that is goaled
In the alchemy of madders of
Tres passers for bid
Native peoples beset
Buy this great-great-great-great grand chide
As a too ahead
That fatal ran some
From exhorting pros and cons
