Aboriginal Break Dancer

He danced around the camp fire
Emu like kangaroo spectacular
Dingo cunning
Snake like through the waving eucalypt thread
Soft trails in the sand
Fire ash in a skyward spiral
Left leg thumping the warm sand
Right leg supporting historic events
Elder stories of the older world
For those with an aboriginal heart
In a white city he could not see
The gathering he could not hear the stories
He saw the white man’s dance
Was broken
The break dancer revealed little
To this Blackman about his future
