Forty-five bucks
and a good sweat later
the Shaman who said
he was from

a long line of
Cherokee holy men
sang one last
Lakota song,

gave you a
Seminole medicine pouch
and a Kiowa name,
told you that you’d

now received an
Indian education,
a new spirituality,
and to, next time,

take advantage of his
"Friends Drum Free" coupon.
