Copy of Columbian Exchange
Transcript of Copy of Columbian Exchange
A lyrical tale based on the Blackfoot Legend. Told from the perspective of an old man who's name means He-who-loves-horses. This story shows the importance of horses to the Native Americans in the Great Plains.
The Columbian Exchange
And to the new found shores, many more would come,
At the outset for treasure, and later for rum.
While those staying home in the Old World nations
Were thrilled, indeed, by these explorations.
Like a sudden sunburst, how their lives did change:
Dinner menus, for one, did it re-arrange.
As ships back to Europe were laden with goods:
Like tomatoes and corn, and potatoes and wood.
Of course, trading back then was still filled with danger,
With the seas deadly rought and pirates no stranger.
-- But one thing is certain: Spanish sailors were daring
In the Age of Exploring and of brave sea-faring.
And what a marvel it was, what a change of pace,
To hear of new peoples and discover new tastes.
Like pineapples and turkeys and the cocoanut frond,
Indeed, goodies galore did now cross “the pond.”
With peppers and spices and tortillas and beans
Soon filling the plates of hungry Europeans.
And while trying new foods and learning new ways
Is not always easy, it adds dash to one’s days.
While oranges, lemons and stalks of sugar cane,
All made their way west-ward from the ports of Spain.
Soon after came horses, came cattle and wine
To shape how the New World would travel and dine.
And The Columbian Exchange, as this became known,
Brought chocolate as well to those Old World homes.
-- It’s a wonder to think and a fright to ponder:
What folks did for a snack before chocolate came yonder?

The sun is leaving.
I am all alone.
Its rays are barely reaching me,
and I am losing hope.
This pain just keeps pulling me down
Into a deep abyss of death,
I try to take a breath
but the weigh is still on my chest.
I wish this wouldn't hurt bad,
then I might not be so sad.
Then I could be home,
Where I belong.
