One Last Battle Cry

You break into my house

and claim it as your own

You strip the walls

Pull up the floors

And use the pieces

To build up your throne.

Respect

Is what you expect

But honesty

Is what you deserve.

Because honestly

You’re a bastard to serve.

You build an empire

Top down

Settle upon my grounds

and let out the hounds.

I am no Terra Nullius

My land is not for the taking.

Don’t look down at me

Your head shaking

Your words whipping

Lashing me with lies.

It saddens me

To watch you bring down

The bridges between us

Because I am not after your crown

I am not your enemy.

Just a friendly neighbour

With an open harbour

Trying to hold back

Your tsunami.

It’s always been so hard for me

To say anything

Above your battle cry

But I will give you this

One last try

To make amends

Before you die.
