Imperialism 21st Century Style

I don’t speak your language

Am I sorry?

Of course not – No

I’m descended from the conquerors

Who came so long ago

To civilise you savages

And incidentally –

Steal your lands

Why should I learn your language

You were once our deadly foe

You had better learn my language

Or you will have to go

I don’t have to understand

Why don’t you realise

That we’re your imperialist masters

It’s to serve us that you survive

Of course you can have your freedom

But it has to be on our strict terms

Just as long as you’re subservient

I’m sure we’ll get along
