Chiapas 109

another trouble's comin'
to North America
the natives to the continent
acting restless again

racists lie in quiet, waiting
for a hundred years
 passively participating
 to make the last disappear

 Canadians in shock, surprised
 to see the Nations rise
from desolation's reservations
despite it all, alive 

In Chiapas, Mexico
Zapatistas emerged in silence
40,000 people, many of them Mayan
occupied five cities
revolution without violence
