The horn

They hunted erect,

the dark continent brooded.

They followed game north,

the dark continent brooded.

The came for spices,

the dark continent brooded.

They came for trade,

the dark continent brooded.

They came for slaves,

the dark continent brooded.

They came for imperialism,

the dark continent brooded.

They came for their god,

the dark continent brooded.

They came for sport,

the dark continent brooded.

They came for science,

the dark continent brooded.

They came for democracy,

the dark continent brooded.

They come for humanitarianism,

the dark continent broods….

Thousands die and suffer,

and the dark continent waits…
