Noble Spirits

Hypocrites thrive on these sorts of occasions.
It's Holocaust Day, a fine time to put on
One's serious face and intone, "Nevermore."
Six million dead Jews are more than enough.
The rest of us ought to feel shame for our
Silence, as everyone knew what the Nazis
Were doing.  "Next time, we'll speak up,"
The hypocrites say, but, as they proclaim
Themselves righters of wrongs, the offspring
Of those who who were killed in the Holocaust
March into towns on the West Bank and murder
The Arabs they've turned into prisoners
There.  The hypocrites know what the
Monsters are doing, but, once again,
None of them speaks.

I agree with you Lawrence,
The Holocaust was and still is an atrocious attack,
On innocent people unfortunately it still goes on.
