Aboriginal Break Dancer

He once danced around the camp fire
Emu like
Kangaroo rhythm
Dingo cunning showing in his eyes
Snake like waving eucalypt
Powerful trails in the sand
Fire ash in a skyward spiral
Left foot thumping warm sand
Right foot supporting historic events
Elder stories a much older world
An aboriginal heart lost
In a white city he could no longer see
Or hear the stories
He saw only the white man’s dance
Was broken
Revealing little
Ignorant of his culture
Locked in a Whiteman bottle
