Broken Promises – A poem written for Kira’s Sunday Scribbles.


This poem was written for Kira’s Sunday Scribbles, see the picture above and the link below:


They said the land was theirs,

but when you’ve got a gun, who cares?

So he shot dead their chief,

adding more to their grief

and to continue the list

of so many treaties dismissed.

The breakdown of trust added anew

between the settlers and the nation of Sioux.

Filled with so much hatred, unspoken,

caused by the gun and the promises broken.

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.
