The Last Pākehā

The last pākehā
I came into contact with
was in northern China
I didn’t like him
and tried
to keep away from him
Always told my girl
never to talk to him
to encourage him
But one night
I was drunk on whiskey
And he sent his whore
to talk to me
invite me to his table
Later his whore said
I had insulted her
In fact
I was totally innocent
she was drunk
I had left
to try
and cool the situation
And he had attacked me
from behind
From that day
I made a rule about pākehā
