Never Forget

the next time
you are reminded
to never forget
ask yourself,
"What have I forgotten?"

was it the forced diaspora of the indigenous
and the enslavement of the other?
or the rise and fall
of the fascist boots of Europe?
the fallen twins
of the American dream?
or the millions dead
from partisan hubris?

as the rusty muscle car
draped in Old Glory
caps the end
of the American parade
ask yourself,
"What have we forgotten?"
