The Colonial Contest: Schadenfreude 2

darkness-black-train-imageYour knowledge, erudition

The devaluation  of tradition,

The crafting of innovation,

The advantage of education,

The roll call of the printer,

The rifle and the powder,

Your indomitable  will to conquer,

Skill to  Incite among my ranks deceit .

All I had was some self respect,

Which your taunt grated, it  hurt

Deep into self,  it pierced ,

Empty my fury, yet livid, irate,

I knew I had lost,

To your mind brilliant.

I disengaged.
