Could I have seen the consequence
Of my bold exploration,
Looking back before I left
Upon my life's creation --
Millions genocidally
Butchered, starved, enslaved,
Under laws and governments
Savage, cruel, depraved --
Despite all this, I would have gone,
And new lands found, and new worlds known,
Yet drawn by what I craved.
