THIS UNWITTING HOLOCAUST- a poem, by E.S.V.
(40th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade) (1/23/13)
I stare at the piercing eyes of 50 plus million
Those who never had a voice on earth
We have decimated a whole generation of souls
We are all guilty, somehow, of this crime.
I myself remember my freshman college year,
Months later, the blood flow finally came,
but it could have been us, too,
We have snuffed out 50 plus million lives
And when you consider the entire world,
than all the machinery whirring in a world of industry,
Thank God that there is a blood
How we need this blood to cauterize
