People Called Sioux - A Holocaust Poem - Poem by Anthony Weir
Was Shel Silverstein just being crass
in the lyric sung by Johnny Cash -
or was he being amazingly, subversively,
The boy was not a boy, but a lot of men and women
their name not Sue but Sioux,
and ethnically cleansed by some of American Democracy's
many land-grabs and pogroms
carried out by racist rednecks
and Ulstermen with bombs.
(many more than 9 million aboriginal Americans were killed in every possible way by Europeans)
