An orbituary for a victim of fascism

Running through the street
chased by a nameless crowd
baying for my blood,
I begin to realize,
I may escape the mob,
but your silence

will get me.

Time will tell...
And there is always hope... as long as there are voices that continue to sing in the dark times, even if they are the songs about the dark times.
