So how long should England pay for what it did
To Ireland? Or India? Or Kenya?
Perhaps justice would require a famine,
A few million dead, its stolen wealth
Taken back by those from whom it came.
Remember well the crimes, and on the grid
In history's ledgers enter in full the terror.
Choose truth and reconciliation, else,
Kind for kind, there is no end to pain.
