Topic type:

Battle of Gate Pa by Taumanu from Kopukairoa, Arataki Primary School was part of an entry by Room 10 into the 150th Battle of Gate Pā Poetry Poster Competition (2014).

Gate Pa is the battle field.

The guns are going, “Bang! Bang!”

It’s like an earthquake.

The British warning the Maaori saying,

“Attack! Attack!”

People dead on the ground.

Horrific sights on the battle field.

The British are going to take the Maaori land.

The Maaori will keep fighting for their land.
