Cameron's colonial clamor
raising an issue
with significant noise
to drown the thunder out,
Islas De Malvinas,
islands that remain a
tentative thread
from an arrogant past,
not the people the
huddled few,
but oil and gas,
we will plunder maybe
avoid a war,
yet a regressive pain lingers
we have been there
once before,
human cost to be
not the fluctuation
of commodity.
