TRIBUTE
by Heide Arbitter

 

 

 

These days
Some assert
History is a lie
The Holocaust never happened
Somebody made it up

In Washington, DC
Capitol to a country
Of assailed settlers
The blood of recollection
Sprinkled on soil
Fertilized Cement
And blossomed
Memory

Some insist
All visit the Nation’s Capitol
To throw away money
On fake attractions

Fortunately
Concrete structures have thick skins
Which aren’t affected by gossip
And others know
Monuments make history real
So why tear them down

After standing at the Holocaust Memorial
Some will feel
Others will not
All will have faced

Truth
