Paleface Blues

from The Cimarron Banks by Amy Annelle



they're talking behind my back
thinkin' like a pack
takin' down the weak

rollin' on your own again,
weak flesh is sick flesh
oh, no, no please don't

in an awful dream
the master said I had to leave
I could not scream,
though I tried, I tried I tried.
