Native Art – The Conqueror, An Exhibitionist, …

The Conqueror,
An Exhibitionist,
Three hundred pieces hung,
Fixed beauty on high-ceiling walls,
Three hundred year-old echoes,
Fixed natives to trees,
Bodies for hungry gibbets,
Stole futures for industry,
Selling dead souls,
Happy high bidders,
Art lives on.
