What Did We Do? (by Frankie R.)

What Did We Do?
by Frankie R.

The Long Knives came
Took everything I loved.
Burned our homes
to the ground, to ashes.
Destroyed our crops,
our trees, our corn.
Left us with nothing,
Barely any hope.

Now, as we march the trail,
I ask myself,
What did we ever do to deserve this?
What did we do to deserve
Trudging hundreds of miles
to a home which is less than satisfactory?
What did we ever do to upset you, Great Spirit?
What did we do?
