Mantis

Piously robed in green she stands,

Bowing her head and folding her hands,

Was she praying before she ate?

No, just readying to prey on her mate!

Is this how the colonists feel

When they crush old civilizations under their heel?

But , of course, they cannot be called “cannibal”,

A different point of view, or a different hue,

And you are a lower species, after all!
