A Land of No People

I t was manifest destiny brought us to Terra
N ullius – nobody
H ere, hardly,
A part from a few defenceless nomads. Carte blanche, you see, to
B end nature to our will and break their pagan hearts.
I mmigrants nowadays, though, don’t share our common values.
T ime to raise the drawbridge, build that wall!
