Cultural Bleaching

[above is a period artist rendering of Chistopher Columbus,
enjoying the view of his dogs on the heathens]

 

Heard of the Doctrine of Discovery

Medieval version of the Manifest Destiny

Entire continents’ defaced

Hundreds of millions erased and millions displaced

Euro conquest disgrace…

Broken words and broken treaties one after another

Horrors of children torn from mothers

No such thing a over reaching

Centuries of native teaching

Thrown to the curb by cultural bleaching

The world’s indigenous nations

Brought to there knees or brink

Of complete extermination

Euro centric Manifest Destiny

Sorrows of today’s society

Traced to the Doctrine of Discovery
