IT…a poem

no
one
believes
that
it
could
happen
in
America

 

American’s
aren’t
like
people
in
countries
where
there
is
genocide
the
rounding
up
of
religious
and
ethnic
groups

 

no
one
want’s
to
believe
death
camps
and
badges
worn
on
tattered
coats
would
just
show
up
in
New York
Chicago
Georgia
or
Vegas

 

we
aren’t
like
that
we
say

 

there
was
something
wrong
with
people
in
the
countries
where
gypsies
were
rounded
up
where
freedom
and
human
rights
disappeared

 

it’s
time
we
wake
up
to
reality

 

 

the
mistake
is
not
facing
the
fact
that
it
can
happen
anywhere

 

it
has
already
begun

    Very good! It starts when the masses are told, “It’s those immigrants… It’s those…”
