As The Germans Did

In America,

white people are like Germans

in the thirties, we

act like good citizens and

pay our taxes when we’re told

 

even when when we know

too many of our neighbors will

will never grow old

because the government kills

some of them all the time and

 

its done on our dime

and we always bite our tongues

we refuse speak

of evil we hear and see

and we tell ourselves we’re free

 

while our neighbors lungs

are robbed of air, we don’t care

because if we did

we’d demand justice when the

next black person is murdered

 

we’re kidding ourselves

if we say it isn’t true,

if we pretend that

we’d do as Jesus would do.

We do as the Germans did.
