Proud Dad was Jean BaptisteParenteau
was home for generations long ago.
our Mom was politically astute
Uncle Gabriel David Dumont we all
Conflict and stress are old
feelings for us.
Furs and land are like sores oozing
Deep wounds with poison certain
Corrupt power breeds fear and
Jr was killed at Duck
The 85 Rebellion was full of heart break.
Courage and tactical skill the Metis had
little ammunition- so sad.
young Mom surrounded with death
Corruption must soon draw its last breath.
We are left
with bits and pieces of life
How will we recover with damage
