Sit back, relax and drown!

a poem by Zarni

The White Man (and increasingly Woman)

He(she) came. He(she) killed. He(she) looted. He (she) colonized.

Sir/M’am, did you have entry visa to our shores?

What entry visa! Entry visa my arse!!!

Like Jehovah’s Witness, the man in red coat, blue coat, 3 piece suits, 2 suits, said (laughters):

“Let me in or I’d blow your head off.

For me and my lot were to save you from yourself!”

Enter INGOs:

“human rights! human rights!
but bite not your ‘donors’ hands’, all you destitute lot.

“Civil Society, Civil Society!
Let us show you the way to civil society”.

Let Telenor and Statoil bring Development to your land.

GE and GMOs are good for your spirituality.

Drink CokaCola – cleaner and safer than your water!

Thank you, Madam Albright!

C is for Coke and D is for Democracy.
Why didn’t we realize the essence of your American Dream!?

Now back to Basic History of the World.
Europe came to others’ shores.

No visa.
No food.
But, plenty of gun powder to sell, alcohol to distribute and exploitative greed to loot.

The White Man left, having discharged his burden.

Having plundered other peoples homes.
Leaving communities of ‘natives’ messier & deadlier,
and more pathological than they were ever before.

Ah, ‘Civilization’ has been served up.

Carnage, corpses, debris – in sight.

That’s just a small price for ‘Progress’.

So, don’t you dare complain about your country’s pain!

Heard of Africa and Caribbean, with their finely built “potential servants/slaves”?

Heard of the Silk-roaded China with her glittering riches?

Spice Islands and Nippon shoguns?

Siam and Pegu?

And the Crown Jewel of Indian sub-continent where the Raj grew opium for export to Hong Kong as “the emerging market”?

Now, Refugees, what refugees?

Let these greedy petty, half-clad creatures drown.

They will pollute our cultures, rot our social fabric and take our jobs!

No, oh No, they will NOT make “(genocidal) Australia” their home!

On our dead bodies!

No British rescue missions for drowning Afro-refugees.

Really, it’s in their Karma, in their DNAs to suffer.

Give them Buddhism or cheap opium.

Foreign Policies ain’t about human welfare.

Human Rights are luxuries exclusive for beheaded western journalists!

Europe and We the stupid (read UNWISE) White Men are, well, all about resources, cheap labors, seaports and land routes.

Europe – and the West – want it all.

They are destroyers of life one moment – heard of drones and air strikes?? – while playing Keeper of Life, Livelihoods, and Liberalism.

Ah, that “colonialist nostalgia”!

The West and Its Terminal Schizophrenia.

Sit back, relax and drown!
