Imprecatory Prayer of the Northern Wolves

when the hunters flew in the sky
and killed our brothers and sisters
we tried to run but could not escape
the long guns, the hard bullets
they come at us so fast

the land is our home
the air is our spirit
the prey is our food
the world is our life

when we are gone our children cry
when we howl we are alone
when the sun rises
it rises without us

Sky Goddess
Earth Father
Snow Mother
River Daughter
Cave Son
All

hear this and know:
we are evolving in a dream
we are walking in the hunter's night
we smell their blood money
we mark their minds
we are running in their shadows
we are the endless pack in the forest
this night the hunters sleep is fitful
this night we arrive in a different world
and take them apart
and break their skin
and turn their arms into branches
and turn their eyes into birds
and set their jaws agape
we are standing as sentries among the killers
this night we howl in their lives
this night will be all nights
and the killers will know us and fear sleep
and the killers will know us and fear sleep

Sky Goddess
Earth Father
Snow Mother
River Daughter
Cave Son
All

when the moon is full
look for us beyond the hills
we are running
we are the hunters once more

Sky Goddess
Earth Father
Snow Mother
River Daughter
Cave Son
All
