The Aboriginal People Of N Am

After taking their pride and dignity
Robbing them of their land, destroying their culture
Turning them into objects of shame and ignominy
Who among us would not turn
To drink, drugs or suicide
To quench the inner fires that burn
Stoked by dreams that have died
Mistreated by bureaucrats and politicians who've lied
But why should any of us berate
The Aboriginals for being the way they are
When we are the authors of their fate
Let us not pass by
Or chide them from afar
Let us first admit
We were wrong
Then proceed to right
The wrongs that have been done
Whether the time it takes is short or long
We must right them one by one.
