Colonial Capitalism

Patina of Decay

Hands were lost

backs were slashed

children were born

in the congress of rape

Ships sailed

lands were conquered

indigenous souls

were shattered

Governments formed

settlers spread

banks cast their shadow

of debt

Societies glitter, dance

and self-congratulate

drunk on their delusion

of class benevolence
