Poem-A-Day #194 : Fragment

Fragment

The world is full of platitudes wanting everyone to get along
They slap against the faces of people who have felt the other side of the boot
Violence was ok as long as it was the kind dealt by European faces
Over the last millennia over the last for ever
We do not get to decide our histories
Nor do we get to decide when those stories are done with us
