NEVER AGAIN FOR ANY OF US
A breaking of glass,
The cutting of ear locks,
A lynching by a stream,
The stoning on a street,
The act of terror and terrorism
& the silence of the world.
You can have this, they told him,
If you end what you are doing
And he lied and took it
And continued to take anew.
Still: a silence from the world
And the evil men and evil women
Following orders, following orders
& the world let silence murder.
