A bunch of rowdies from Isabella’s plague infested cities;
Cross the Terra Incognito to plague the inhabitants of the New World;
Mankind before had never seen conflicts between two more unequal civilisations;
This was a clash between the ‘Heathen’ and the bearers of Christ’s benevolence.
A clash between peace loving and war-mongering nations;
A conflict between the ‘Obsidian swords’ and ‘ Brute Steel’;
A war raged for gore, greed and a gullible monarchy.
Columbus, you are now crowned in glory;
The whole world celebrates your triumphant entry;
Pity that humans have so short a memory;
Shame that Man is so gullible a creature;
Anger that a manipulative media is so unhistorical.
If the millions of innocent butchered in cold blood;
From Hispaniola to Machu Pichu reflect deeds worthy of emulation and adulation;
Then all the Pol-Pots and psychopathic dictators of today are but children of these Spanish Pioneers.
Columbus, you and your younger sibling are guilty of crimes against humanity;
For which, if tried, even Nuremburg would pale into insignificance;
But alas! This world remembers only One Hitler; whereas, O shameless Pizarro and Cortez!
Your loins were made of the same filthy stiff as the Fascists we all love to hate.
