Propaganda Pamphlet - Poem by Michael Pruchnicki

That's what it said-
'Surrender or be alienated
with those who are half-naked! '

They came out of the bush
in battalions carrying weapons
on their shoulders with barrels
pointed to the ground,
their hands raised.

We told them-
'Do not be scared! You are welcome! '

Then we wasted them all!

Poor naked wretches
that bide the pelting of the storm!
How shall your raggedness
defend you from seasons
such as these?
