Charles J. Ingerson: Without Memory
Photo ©Copyright 2014 by Charles J. Ingerson
Somewhere in time it’s there
what happened and to who
even written records were kept
proud and bold – arrogant
not as fancy as post-war Europe
half a world away unimportant
over 6,000,000 Chinese dead
28% of POW’s murdered
torture and rape occurred
cutting off heads – fingers
shooting helpless people
murder in the name of peace
no war – just incidents had
violations and inhumanity
treated as if without memory
murderers went fully free
hurtful feelings restless
they kept records fully
just ignored in the name
of what money can buy
as then the same today
worldly morals/values
in opposition to virtue
as then the same today!
