Conflicts: Part 2
THE BOER WAR AND OTHER CONFLICTS

Victoria had died: God save King Edward,
Imperialism strong a Europe Grand,
But the German Reich arose steadfast,
With the Kingdom of Italy close at hand.
Into Africa they stormed for riches,
Rival nations of the white man tribes,
But the British navy had sown strong stitches,
Across the oceans deep and wide.

The gold rush claimed white folks desire,
The Boer war started and the British won,
But the African bellies still burned with fire.
