Today, International Holocaust Remembrance Day, 2021, is the most important of these memorial days since its inception on 2005.
Never Again, yet we see nazis,
goose-step down the street.
Our streets, America, Our streets this time;
not streets seas away.
Never Again, we hear them;
their jack-boots thud concrete.
They go storming on hate-fueled feet.
Never Again, we say aloud.
But once more, they’re alive and proud.
And once more, we hear their crowd:
“The Jews will not replace us.
6 million were not enough.
Send ’em to Camp Auschwitz
The Yids, they all must die.
“The Blacks, we gotta lynch them
Arabs, bleed ’em until they’re dry.
The queers and trans, let’s gas ‘em
The Others; they must all die.
“You autistics, we’ll crush your skulls.
The deaf, you do not deserve to live.
The blind, gonna gouge out your eyes,
The Weird; they all gotta die.
“You catholics, you’re no kind of christian.
Methodists, you ain’t no better.
Mormons and witness, y’all better listen.
These heathens, they all gotta die.”
The Capital riots were not the ending.
That was merely the start.
The hate must be crushed, or there is no defending
the soul of America’s heart.
