Washington - Poem by O Anna Niemus

Washington was a Mason, a slaveowner, an avid fox killer participating in hunts, an insider trader who profited
from the sale of land for Washington's capital. Washington sat with his feet warm in a heated house while
his soldiers' feet froze off at Valley Forge.

Yet, whenever she watched a movie about him,
my mother shed rare tears.
