Academia blocks real knowledge,
  Native Peoples will attest

So many wrappings covering their lies,
  each field does then arrest

With logic and ethics pointing the way,
  their path leads further down

Young minds abandoned, thoughts astray,
  pontificates espouse

Academia buries the truth
  then wears it like a crown

Claiming it only for itself,
  its charlatans abound

Attacking all others points of view
  with ink to cut and maim

Touting themselves, they flounder and drift
  —a victim of their game

(Villanova Pennsylvania: February, 2019)
