"Do you remember them, America?"



Taken away from their family
Their handmade clothes destroyed
Their hair shamefully cut
Little bodies washed with kerosene

Their spirituality suppressed
A new religion forced on them
They were sent to work hard
To supply industries

Blows given for speaking
Their language forbidden
Punishments again and again
And insults without end

Why?

Who would do this
to children?

Who would conceive
of such brutality?

What sin had they committed
to deserve this?

Thousand and thousands
of children...

Do you remember them, America?
Do you care?
