(Poem) Mountain Chanter's Curse by Maya Daniel

mountain-chanters-curse-by-maya-danielStay away from our lands,
You, plunderers of the earth,
Do not disturb our waters
The horizons may seem still,
Motionless, but we are wild,
Our mountains are steep,
Ravines are deadly deep,
Our vines are silent traps
They will crush you, tucked
Between the rocks
They will pull your last breath
You can call to no one for help
One more, stay away from
Our lands, warriors are Red
Do not touch an ore, stay away
Before the bullets and bronze
Below explode and set you afire
You will remember nothing!
