The Face of Disgrace

United Nations, Wikimedia.org

Different countries,
You’d think different folks.
Yet at the end of the day
They roll on the same spokes.

European powers embraced the slave trade,
While the French Republic colonized every damn day.

The United States exterminated the Native whole,
As the Germans annihilated the Jewish soul.

Stalin loved to produce man-made famines,
While Mao executed to bring his earthly canons.

The Ottoman extinguished the Armenians,
While Italy slaughtered the Ethiopians.

And even with the Swiss who sat in the middle
Entered the game of gold administration,
From the Jews the Nazis cremated.

And if you believe your country is safe
Realize they have a common face;
Death for political power and elimination of a race.
