8.7.20 – YOU SHALL NOT build a pipeline through our land

Protestors and picketers demanded the ears
Of the high court officials who commanded the year’s
Biggest threat to Dakota Native land;
But ultimately fell to the voice of the Man.

This court’s officials decided to change
What had been established by the first court’s quick claim.
What was once a decision to shut down the pipe
Now is a threat to the Native way of life.
