Currency

Our currency is covered

with Indian killers

and slave owners.

 

Our heroes were all Indian killers

and slave owners.

 

Our ancestors all benefited from genocide

and slavery

even if they couldn’t see the blood

on their hands,

they were complicit in genocide

and slavery

even if they couldn’t see the blood

on their hands.

 

We all benefit from genocide

and slavery

even if we can’t see the blood

on our hands,

we are all complicit in genocide

and slavery

we all have blood

on our hands

whether we can see it

or not.

 

Our currency drips

with the blood

of humanity.

Our heroes are still Indian killers

and slave owners.

We are all Indian killers

and slave owners.

About soitgoes1984

I was born and raised on land stolen from the Pocumtuc. I now live on a small island in the middle of the Pacific ocean, on land that was stolen more recently, from the Hawaiians. I am addict, struggling to kick the habit of fossil fuel. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.
