I Was There - Poem by Denis Kucharski

I was there
When they crucified Christ
And slaughtered Gandhi
And ate Martin Luther
And King Jr., too.

I sat by
As they voted for nothing
And left those to rot
Whom they entrusted

I stood idly by
As they made their way
Through the abyss
And took away all that was good
In the name of 'freedom'
In the name of righteousness

Swallowed down with a bitter pill
We call pragmatism
I call surrender
But I never amounted to anything

Because I dared to dream.
