We are the Children of the Genocides of Yesteryears.

You should know that we are
the children
of the genocides of yesteryears.

And we make no apologies 
when we say
we don’t believe you
as you say,
lips greasy, dripping, oily
smacking with a life lived in safety,
speaking ‘never again’s
as the blood of our kin
fills the depths of the seven seas
and the very earth itself
to overflowing.
