If I could, I would See you in tall ships sail into our harbours Carrying the many small seeds of our destruction If I could, I would Watch you fire long sticks of flame from far off hilltops Our sticks falling short of any meaningful response If I could, I would Let you force your Gods down our throats And build wrongness in the land If I could, I would let you say We don't exist. Pay us with addiction. Make us carry dog collars. Ask permission to marry, to breed To die. If I could, I would most of all Give you back your mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters Uncles and all the other Ys But if I could I might Ask Should I?
