Trying To Hide The Evidence - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

The one thing that is disturbing,
About observing ignorance...
Is the time people spend,
Denying with a hiding of the evidence.
And defending it and themselves,
By doing the best they can to protect it...
From being criticized by those believed,
Are enemies...
Making attempts to take it away from them.

    Lawrence is always true

    How you can hide
    The evidences like genocide
    Their offspring are there
    They can narrate
    What they heard
    They dreamed
    But the politics stays unfair
    Because in them
    No faith breathe
    Only they can see
    Their sitting chair...

    A Soul from Genocide
