Black And White

Rating: 3.9
We come to you with outstretched hand.
We are here to liberate your land.
We remove the burden from your back.
Your enemies, we will attack.
We freed you from the tyrant chains.
We smashed his boats, tanks and planes.
We gave our lives so you could see
How life is good when you are free.

You come to us with gun in hand
You are here to rape our sovereign land
You striped the clothing from our back
Our children die as you attack.
You bound us with economic chains
Enforced by boats, tanks and planes
You took our lives so we could see.
That in this life, nothings free

Great poem. A complete contrast of perceptions, that to the two parties are their reality and their truth concerning what they are doing, but yet so conflicting. Good job
