Searching for a poem about aliens justifying their conquer of a "new world" - ours.

The terms I remember (alien, new world, poem) are vague enough that my googlefu fails me. This poem involved aliens visiting Earth and killing all us humans, but justifying it by talking about the happiness they would now discover here and how we were nothing like them. It uses a lot of made-up scifi words.
Obviously, it's meant to strongly parallel the massacre of Native American tribes in America (and other similar historical events.) I'm reasonably certain it's called "The New World."
