“Can you think of another crime
where they blame the victim?”
someone asked, on my facebook newsfeed
maybe Attawapiskat, dressed too suggestively?
The PM quibbles about a few million
spread out over five years, and finds
someone else to blame
instead of just solving the problem
When white kids need a new school.
It gets built. (after all/take it for granted,
that’s what our tax dollars pay for)
Children don’t learn
in contaminated classrooms
maybe the children of Attawapiskat
should file a class-action lawsuit:
failure to provide the necessities for life
it’s only a matter of time
before someone dies, if they haven’t already
ill health only requires a proven correllation.
You want to talk a few million–
“Those greedy Indians always with their hand out”,
–“They don’t pay taxes anyway”–:
let’s talk DeBeers
and a multi-billion dollar diamond mine
not two hours from Attawapiskat
in the heart of their Traditional Territory
How much revenue, will that generate
over that same five-year span?
Maybe Attawapiskat, should sub-contract
the Diamond mine, to DeBeers’ competitor
with all taxes flowing to the First Nation
That should just about cover the cost
for a new school with a playground,
and safe drinking water, & be enough
to keep children out of tents
shivering in the cold
-40 degree Canadian winter.
