Facing annihilation, Anne Frank still believed
“…people are really good at heart.”
Little she would have known
German Gestapo would reincarnate
In American ICE agents in Mississippi.
Lillian, a little angel to Honduran parents
After kindergarten, coming to a ransacked home
“Where did Mommy and Daddy go?”
No answer, adults marching to detention centre.
Nearby, the strongman grinning with a wounded baby,
Just-orphaned, parents gunned down by his “hate merchants”.
The Angel of Anne protecting Lillian under her wings
Whispers “….this cruelty too shall end,
that peace and tranquility will return once more.”
