Stolen land

Wed, 06/10/2015 - 17:50 -- meowlli

You have stolen our land,
and buried it to the ground.
You oppressed us, we were banned.

Always misunderstood for being tanned,
not a single word from taking my house.
You have stolen our land.

You said you paid, but it was planned,
and now we are being kicked out.
You oppressed us, we were banned.

And you say: we eat from your hand,
but you get food thanks to us.
You have stolen our land.

Immigration would like us to be canned,
but why would we let you be?
You oppressed us, we were banned.

How can you say we need to understand?,
this was ours to begin with.
You have stolen our land,
You oppressed us, we were banned.
