lest we forget

A half assed nod

What the fuck is wrong with us
That we
Feel the need
To act like nothing ever happened
Take your fucking head
Out of the sand
It was here
We did it
That kind of shit
Doesn't just go away
There are century deep scars
A half assed nod does not suffice
We need keep our history close
Lest we forget how we got here
While we owe a debt
To those whose backs shoulded
The burden of freedom
We still owe
With our words
And actions
A debt of grief for those
Whom were ground under
The heels of progress
