Through the eyes of a British soldier

 

When will this end? My fellow team mates dying,

Frightened, strong, angry, upset, confused, threatened,

is this a challenge?

What are they saying? What are those holes?

Will I get out of here? What are those ugly faces?

What are they wearing? Gunpowder.

Death.

 


Through the eyes of a Māori warrior

 

Cannons, why do they want our land?

What’s that noise? Where are they?

I hope they don’t find my wife and children.

Frustrated, upset, angry,

When will it end?

Death.
