Dear U.S. Atomic Energy Commission & Others

26-depleteduranium

United States Atomic Energy Commission
And Others

Hundreds of mines
Still sit open
To wind and air
Uranium dust
Covering communities
Entering waterways
Indians must be expendable
Unlike these toxins
That won’t go away
We still hear those miners
Sent to their deaths
Bone Blood
Organs Hair
Spirit
