396 – 1492

Poem number 396
.
1492
.
In the year of 1492
Columbus sailed the ocean blue
He found a land with no one there
(Except for Natives everywhere)
He went ashore with nails and planks
And built a country for the Yanks
Those Yanks did prosper, year on year
And now they rule the world, I fear –
I wish in 1492
When C had sailed the ocean blue
He’d seen that land so clean and vast
But lost his nerve, and sailed right past.
