Silence Rescued Silence Revealed Silence Restored

In dedication of Holocaust Remembrance Day

Once upon a time

there was a holocaust…

 

Millions died

because of one man

because of one people

 

Because of a silence

so unprofound

that people were

caused not to speak

 

They were cautioned

not to breathe

and whatever faint

breaths they had

were better he

than me

 

And this silence

grew until

it became a loud noise

 

And today we

revere that silence

with more silence

 

And yes

millions are still

easily slaughtered

 

And economies

of life

are shattered

 

And people

would rather protest

than live

 

And still

the silence

remains

 

And we celebrate

that silence

today

 

Isn’t it fitting?
