Charles Fredrick Draycott - North West Mounted Police


History is raw and untamed with varieties of venues

Riel, Dumont, the NWMP were all part of the menu

Charles Draycott our beloved NWMP was there to

His duty was guarding Riel during his last days in situ.


He watched as Riel hung for high treason in Regina.

His duty demanded full control in historys arena.

Searching for rebel Metis was Major Steeles request

Charles Draycott, around for 21 years was the best.


The story played and replayed; controversy was high

We were all cursed with troubled orders they sighed.

We all wanted to live our lives in peace of course

-Government proclamations gave us no recourse.


In time truth and justice becomes clear and powerful

The dark side of human nature is always disdainful.

Riel now the Father of Manitoba was granted his due

Metis families eventually found justice, long overdue.
