The Stone Age Never Ended

1904 Nayenezgani, a navajo man edward s curtis

It’s strange times we live, where
Poets are killed for abandoning faith
Apostasy. Christ, they kill people for that?

The Stone Age never ended
And they’re breaking out the banjos
For fascists bent
On making the country great

These may be the times for which
They danced the Ghost Dance
Apartheid born again
Evangelizing plastic Jesus again
Unborn Bankei, aborted Banksy
Sartre swiping selfies

And the Stone Age never ended
It is worth repeating
