The Missing Continent

In their minds of exalted kingdoms

They pride in science and great discoveries.

Wearing the mask of knowledge

Restricted to the shores of their colours.

For this vain

Swallowed in dust

They killed, maimed and harmed the innocent

Of our race

Through imposed ‘colonialism’.

With guns of their wicked inventions

And books of their imposed morality.

Brutality spreads like carpet

From the queen’s empire

To the kindest kingdoms

Of our ancestors.

We gave them land

They took the more.

They broke our laws and burnt our gods

Saying ours are no gods but idols.

Those who worship God with the gun

Imposed missionrape on our shore

Fought wars of colours

With the slaves in bondage.
