‘We’re out!’, they crowed, we’re out and proud,
self-styled ‘real people’, triumphant and loud.
Thus began a meditation at a conference last week on development education. The meditation continued:
They’d got their country back, their turf and their ways,
the ones known by their forebears in good old days,
when foreigners everywhere, whatever their race,
were neither here nor uppity, knowing their place.
