the forgetting…

the forgetting

from franco
to
trump
the stench
of
death
cannot be hid
it
flows
from
history’s bins
of
oppression
and
from
unmarked graves
now
covered
with grassy lies
and
halfhearted
apologies
for
atrocities
committed
now
undeniable
yet
politicos
strive
once again
to
rewrite lines
of
truth
with lines
of
deceptions
and
subterfuge
saying
to move on
we
must
forget
what happened
to heal the nation
said
as they
brush off
dried blood
from
their sleeves
and
hands
the blood
of
complicity

  1. Speaking as a psychologist, we can’t move on until there is resolution, and there isn’t resolution until the truth is on the table to be examined, and once acknowledged there is acceptance of responsibility and soul wrenching repentance. What they are really saying is shut up and get lost.
