Freedom to Think

Christopher Columbus

Rumble of cannon fire in the distance

Enemies all just small and persistent

Smoke wreathing, battlefield agog

History remembers, but it’s all raped in fog

 

Repression of the troops instead the General(s) vanity

At times it really can challenge your sanity

Christopher Columbus was a murderer of savages

More than a million killed in that ‘heroes’ ravages

 

He didn’t use tanks machine guns or gas

His ‘warriors’ just hung, burned and slashed en masse

Hands and heads and hearts cut out

Cos they were the guvnors, the savages the louts

 

Some of us are forgiven, worshipped more than deserved

Others lie in shallow graves, were they reserved?

Is it the soldier that kills to order?

Or order that kills our uniqueness moreover

 

Adolf and Idi and others so villained

Colombus and Custer hailed and betrothed

 

The canon of man is a curious mix

We close our eyes and just guess at the fix

History shows a bloodbath of tricks

And the media man as always so slick

'They made bets as to who would slit a man in two, or they opened up his bowels. They tore the babes from their mothers breasts by the feet and dashed their heads against the rocks... They made a gallows just high enough for the feet to nearly touch the ground, and by thirteens....in honour and reverance of our redeemer and his twelve apostles, they put wood underneath, and, with fire they burned the indians alive.....

Genocide, a man revered as hero and great navigator killed just under a million native indians. Commanding his troops to cut off their hands and gouge out their eyes if they failed to  meet the daily gold dust quota by even the smallest margin
