Through the eyes of a Māori warrior

 

There is war, there are soldiers and there is gore

People dying, people trying, simply to stay alive

Over there. What is that thing? It looks like a person

pointing a gun at me.

Will I be alive to see tomorrow?

There has been so many deaths already, how could I

know?

 


Through the eyes of a British soldier


What weapon is that person holding?

I can hear a loud song, like chanting and screaming, what

are they saying?

I am scared but also feared by lots of these people

How will our plan go?

Will it work?

I don’t know but I hope it does.
