If One Could Ask

 

if one could ask

straight-faced

“Could The Holocaust ever happen again?”

gazing horror-struck

on vile monuments of yesterday's despicable evil

their eyes crookedly avert

our own street corners

our own back alleys

our own public squares

our own Auschwitzes, Treblinkas and Chelmnos

today

where victors over atrocities

too horrifying to describe perform

far more

of their own

far worse

on their own

 

all the more horrifying

for our silent acquiescence
