For all that there is
worthy of apology,
how did this term
come to connote,
a person acting contrarily
to the democratic ideals,
and spiritual values,
to which so many of us
claim to devote?
I’m sorry
if you can only see labels,
are cursed
with a political binary switch,
but the truth is,
in war, atrocities,
and taking responsibility
is sometimes a bitch.
