Never again

do you remember when you said,

“never again?”

well, it’s happening—right now—and instead

you look away from people who don’t look like you

and choose


when you swore you’d say something

it’s been months and the clocks are still ticking

not once has your representative’s phone line started ringing

it costs you nothing to start caring, 

much less to begin boycotting

and you’ve got people protesting—from all groups,

christians, muslims, sikhs, agnostics, and jews,

so what’s your excuse?

or did you not pay attention in school?

you must have failed history and now you’re failing humanity, too.
