UNDER SIEGE TILL FURTHER NOTICE

Sins of fathers, mothers
Visited on sons, daughters
Of sons and daughters
Inheritance of
Newest generation
War raged–in the
Conventional sense
As a matter
Of course

Prejudice
Ignorance
Defiance
Bubbled in
Hardened hearts
Like invisible
Cumulonimbus
Storm clouds
On both sides
Of the great divide

Repugnance
Begat
Familiarity
Abhorrence
Accepted
As inevitability
