A Far Cry From Africa, Derek Walcott, 2007.

[...] I who am poisoned with the blood of both,
Where shall I turn, divided to the vein?
I who have cursed
The drunken officer of British rule, who choose
Between this Africa and the English tongue I love?
Betray them both, or give back what they give?
How can I face such slaughter and be cool?
How can I turn from Africa and live? [...]

Old World New World, John Agard, 2003

[...] Spices and gold once cast a spell
On bearded men in caravels.
New World New World cried history
Old World Old World sighed every tree.
But Indian tribes long long ago
Had sailed this archipelago.
They who were used to flutes of bone
Translated talk of wind on stone. [...]
