BEING INDIAN IN WHITE COUNTRY

I was going down the street

after renting a movie from

Blockbuster,

when suddenly a big red truck

came zooming by.

A white guy in a cowboy hat

stuck his head out the window.

I had my Haskell shirt on,

the Indian head on my chest.

He yelled at me,

"Indian!"

I happy, I yelled back,

"Cowboy!"

Sweet poem found in an issue of the Tribal College Journal.
