詩 Sovereignty

Have you ever seen a banker
leaving work on time?
Or asked the rhyming hedgehog
why he rhymes?

No, I've only seen a banker
working overtime
I've only known hedgehogs
dull at verse

Have you sweated in the
sweatlodge of accounting?
Have you wrestled with
the finance of the heart?

The current tax paradigm
has been my prison
have been my curse

Have you seen the hope of
a downtrodden people rekindled
or the most basic longings satisfied?

Seen the rolling prairies
where small jets arrive
or sovereign
extra-territorialities' fruits realized?

From A Visit to the Full-Service Native American Bank comic vignette.
