POWDERED PATH TO MUSKET WARS – poetry compt. entry 2016

Powdered path to the musket wars

Into Battle: Three Cheers for Our Enemies!


there are bats in my nest

so I flee Ruapekapeka

Hongi Hika troubling me for a reload

carrying Ngapuhi on his back

missionaries in his pocket

fearful iwi disappearing below Kororareka

and shredded uniforms bleeding red on red
