By Audrey Hope


Where is your warrior spirit, where is it hiding?
Calling your lion courage, your elk stamina, your buffalo stance.
Take it off the mantle, this gentleness is killing us.

While we humbly do our spiritual work,
And look at our sins, and grow our karma,
The other forces are enjoying —
A world of greed, a world of fear.

It matters. I know forgiveness is good.
And of course love is the way.
Yes, yes. Got it. We all got it.

The government won’t save us.
Oh god, you do know that — of course!

Our only hope is the power of our radiance, small in number
     — but fierce.
And to remember our native friends who know the hunt.

Time to dress with shield and sword and bow and arrow —
     any armor that respects the fight.
You have to get up.
Or the storms will make you.

Raise your voice, raise your arms, raise anything!
Claim our spiritual land.
Take it back — it is our time.
Dost thou know the balancing of the clouds?

Have you the guts?
To earn the real feathers of a warrior.
It is dangerous days,
And knights are needed.
