When I first learned of Standing Rock

My first reaction was of shock

The companies – all  the same stock

As the protesters they did mock

It really didn’t take me long

To see who was right or wrong

Officials using force against prayer and song

Coming on like King Kong

That’s not all I have to say

This isn’t an act, not a play

Though I can’t be there today

I still will help in any way
