I won't cry
When the Indian dies
I'll just stare in his eyes
And smile, and say
You were a good “man”
You lived a good “life”
On good land
Good land indeed
I'll use it for capital
To build up industry
To construct and
To deconstruct
As I see fit
And then I'll have a family
And we'll take picture portraits
And hang them on our wall
In our house
On the Indian's
Good land.

I enjoy how you critize the white settlers in a sarcastic way that just bites back to anyone who reads it....it gets your message across very well. Good job and good beginning. it catches the attention.
