mountains once roamed
this land, they fought
over women exploded
breathed fire ran off
into the ocean and
shook the earth now
battle scarred wearied
and older they wear
the cloak of Hine Hukatere
in winter and the skies
finery in summer they
command the clouds
weep streams bleed rivers
and rule with mana
sometimes they remember
old scores, fume, blow fire
out their heads and prepare
to fight once more
