Through the eyes of a Māori warrior

 

I see white people

Competitive, prepared, scared, weapons,

Challenge

Taste dirt

Blood on my hands

Gun shooting

Cannons

Never come back

Revenge

Trying to take our land


 

Through the eyes of a British soldier


I see dark skin

Smell blood

People dying

Different weapons

Feather capes

Tongues sticking out

Feeling defeated

Hear war chant

Terrified

Will we die?
