Restless Natives

Creative Native, quite contemplative-
he draws on walls in ancient caves.
So Hieroglyphic speculative:
Cuneiform curses mark mummy graves.

On land the sand, the grains of Man-
exoplated, protective shells.
A last ballast, we're sinking fast;
step lively men, and hoist the sails!

The Tribe has grown and it has thrived-
(their drumbeats echo as if alive!)
We've lost our rudder, I wince and shudder,
and I have lost all will and drive...

No longer fond of the Amazon-
Jungle be damned; I wish 'twere gone!

    Love the juxtaposition of the Yanamamo to Egypt and Cro Mangon to the Amazon. As an archaeo, I love this.

    Thanks, Rick. Glad someone else knows who the Yanamamo are; I watched a documentary on the Discovery Channel eons ago about them and never forgot it. Thanks for the read and response :)

    Hello. Poetry Police. You are under arrest for failing to pay attention. It's a "sonnet", numnut lol. I thought I would try my hand at a couple. Never wrote one in my life and don't really care for them. Just having some fun. Nacho fren, Jewie ("Julie", inside joke; not antisemitic )
