WHERE TRUTH LIES SLEEPING
Ode to the Indian and mestizo farmers of Guatemala victimized by Gold Fever and other commercial interests:
Skeletons of settlements where truth lies sleeping,
Destroyed by soldiers who left people weeping.
Where are the weavers, the potters, the farmers,
The fruit trees and gardens with glimmering flowers?
Where are the animals with tinkling bells,
Waiting for water to be brought from the well?
Where are the babies loved by their mothers,
Field workers, wise ones, children and others?
Silent is the laughter, no bird songs fill the air;
Gone are the families with simple fare to share.
When political regimes leave their farmers dying,
They destroy the earth and truth is left crying.
