Old Devil Time, you soften our pain and bless us with forgetfulness.

The horrors we’ve been party to are finding firm footing in denial.

Now that most of those victims are dead,

We’re free.  Follow the fruit-faced fascist.  Ahead lies blessed darkfulness.

 

Old Devil Time, you’re a svelte con-man, convincing us we don’t need to know history.

In fact we don’t need to know anything, neither math nor science.

We have the Committee for Lies and License

Exchanging knowledge with alternate reality; conjoining truth with ignorance and mystery.

 

Old Devil Time, we aren’t all the fools you would have us be.  Some of us remember.

This go-round, no disappearing our neighbors into train cars and horse stalls.

No matter how long and high the wall,

We, with pink hats, cardboard signs, respect for life, not merely birth, but life.  We remember.

 

Old Devil Fear, we aren’t afraid this time.

Old Devil Hate, no wall will keep us from loving them and them from loving us.

Old Devil Time, we’ll fight with every weapon we can wield because of everything we have learned and because of everything we remember.

Please watch this and pass it on:
