I’ve SJW’ed it for a more 21st century understanding of Columbus.
In fourteen hundred ninety-two
Columbus sailed the ocean blue.
On three ships he took a ride
in order to carry out his genocide.
His sails filled night and day with an unyielding breeze
escorting his sailors who would introduce deadly disease
His heart was filled with Christianity,
evidence of his inhumanity
Colonialism, racism, and subjugation
were goals which allowed no deviation.
There was only one religion, he would assert
He would force each and everyone to convert
Eurocentrism would mean death for numbers untold
just so he could bring them into the fold
The first American? No, not technically.
But the progenitor of this colonialist calamity.
