Stone Cold Fireworks

A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto


Stone Cold Fireworks

 

statues cause unrest

in monumental silence

they scream rabid past---

separation through piqued fence

 

finds its sway

on a lurid Independence Day

The past should be remembered, taught. But I can't say I disagree with tearing down something that does not represent the values of today. Times change. When times change it's generally because beliefs change.
