Remember?

Remember?

Remember when we fought Nazis
instead of defending them?

Remember when we liberated concentration camps
instead of building them?

Remember when we welcomed refugee children
instead of jailing them?

The greatest generation is dying
and their grandchildren have become
the very evil they once saved us from.

(From this week’s Monday Poetry Prompt and current events.)
