unlawful maritime arrivals

assumptions of
civility
and
nonviolence
were made
no one
originally
thought
a code of behaviour
would be necessary
but without
a written document
breaches of
our
code of behaviour
have resulted
in
many deaths
and
to our exile
into undesirable
territories of the country
who could’ve guessed
that
european pilgrims
while praising
their god
could be
so
violent

  1. The spin is that it’s in thier god’s name, however, it’s all about stealing the resources.
    And yes, the violence is beyond comprehension.

  2. I tend to find great meaning in strange, perceived subtleties. The line with the singular word “our” really hit me. Exquisite line construction, both breaking and pacing.
