Very many years ago,

You came to our lands masquerading as peaceful people.

You took us away forcefully on your big wooden boats.

And made us whatever you wanted to make of us.

Now that we are bringing ourselves to your lands,

Why are you working so hard to stop us from coming to where you are?

Could it be that you have a guilty conscience?

Or, are you just afraid of the past repeating itself?
