this land ain’t your land…

From CWMartin Image Collection

contrary
to
what that song
told you
this
ain’t your land
never
was
your forefathers
showed up
without
a passport
or
work visa
and
proceeded
to
lay claim to
anything
and
everything
they coveted
and when
we said
wait a minute jack
they
started shooting us
in order
to
save our heathen souls
seems
like
someone
misread the text
but
let me digress
all
i really
want to say
in this age
of
walls
is
get the hell out
of
my country
