Stolen Land, Stolen Culture, Stolen Identity

Footsteps reverberate off the
Bloody stones filling these
Halls;
Stolen artifacts wrenched from
Stolen lands,
Collected from the rubble
of the great places of
Learning;
Shipped to an island and
Appropriated by the
Rich and powerful;
Sardonically labelled
The “British” Museum,
Force-fed to the masses as
“Great British achievement”,
Whilst the third world continues
to suffer from the
Theft and rape of their culture,
Scorned and slandered as the
Dark places of the world.
