Our Children!

Must our children pay a price?

For their ancestor’s mistakes.

Can we not draw a line?

Let them choose their own fate.

Must our children inherit our prejudice?

Our disdain for that not ours.

Can they not decide?

Isn’t that within your power?

Our children I tell you!

You alone must act!

Do not believe all,

Presented from past as fact.

Study the evidence,

Decide for yourselves.

And then and only then,

With wisdom set sail.
