conquest of paradise


on the horizon
a beach beckons the ship's crew
the gentle virgin
in innocence and curiosity
welcomes the rapist

On Dec. 4 it was announced that the Army Corp of Engineers are halting construction at the particular location being protested by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.  The halt is for further environmental impact studies.  As the President Elect holds shares in the pipeline company I personally have serious doubts there will actually be a change to the location.  Because money and the promise of riches is so seductive.
