(not) long ago

(not) long ago 
my great-great grandmother 
great-great aunts and uncles 
multitudes of unknown cousins 
my ancestors 
targeted 
oppressed 
encamped 

(not) long ago 
your great-great grandfather 
great-great aunts and uncles 
multitudes of unnamed cousins 
your ancestors 
targeted 
oppressed 
enslaved 

(not) long ago 
our indigenous relatives 
native aunts and uncles 
multitudes of unseen cousins 
our ancestors 
targeted 
oppressed 
exterminated 

(not) long from now 
our great-great grandchildren 
great-great nieces and nephews 
multitudes of unborn cousins 
our progeny 
targeted? 
oppressed? 
endangered? 
extinct?
