no doubt

I am without doubt


my homeland

has been invaded

by so many

other tribes from europe

over millenia

that this is not

spoken of

it is taken

for granted

in the names

we have

place names

foods we eat

our wars

help us

misunderstand each other


in very much

the same ways

& we will

devoutly shout out

our hate for each other

as our politicians posture

& then we quietly sit

on each others beaches


how we are the same

yet different

knowing we will

be here again

next year

doing very much

the same

those on other continents

may forget

this conflicted blood



through their veins too

& then wonder


they carry on

much the same
