M.L.Holton recites 'Trading Post'


Trading Post
long knives
short sighs
hours spent
and money lent

trade for skins
and trade for tin
dirty hands
begin again

push and pull for all your worth
long before you touch the earth
children cry for grain to eat
mothers lie to rest their feet

when spring brings on the thaw
off again to cut the paw
rabbits, rodents, bear and elk
muskrat, moose and beaver pelt

slaughtered now beyond our need
slaughtered now in name of greed
‘til the trading post stands no more
‘til all that’s left is Nature’s floor


from CANADADA: TAKE TWO, released March 15, 2017
