The last Indian at Runde


The last Indian at Runde

While the sun sets,
in the rear view windows
of your new electric car.

You see his glory, in rays of light
– on the mountain, from afar

Been pushed by greed,
bribed in gold.

He denies to heed,
refused them all.

Has raised his call,
defends his right.

Will you join him,
– in the fight

Poem by Dag Máhtenjárga
