Silence is Violence

Complicit
compliance
with policies
of violence
perpetrated on
The Others
(we forget
they are our brothers;
no tears
for their wives,
their sisters,
their mothers).

We lounge in palaces
of denial
and remain mute.
Silent.

We see their suffering
and say nothing.

And nothing
could be more violent.
