Mixed History - Poem by Luann Soares Aranha

No love
Left London
Like Lebanon
Londoners lived like lamas

Spitting on each others face
Lamps burnt out
in case they shined and exposed the British
Even the UN (UNable) was called to help
And soon enough a war had started
Just like in the slams of Brazil
Later on Hitler came to offer his help
He promised to the Germans that he would make their country
A better place
But instead
He made their life a living hell

War was everywhere
It even reached the US
Who decided to take the Japanese for an exam
They were used as lab rats
And a new bomb was their test
As for the Portuguese
Well...Iv'e only got one thing to say
Slave Trade!
The Egyptians
Don't even get me started on them
Their fighting each other
Like a bunch of apes
Fighting for space...
This is the human race
Or is it?

We call our selves humans
But deep inside we all know that's not true
We behave like animals
And act as one too
You have no right to tell me I'm wrong
Iv'e got proof
Just look at what happened at world war one and two
I know us the 'humans'
Have a good side too
We love each other and all
But that's a rare reality
And you know
So the fight to be king of the concrete jungle
Will never end
And the animals fighting
will continue dying
Until the full stop is found
To end the sentence
