poem: Every Day is Memorial Day in Darfur by Pen Chant

how many days since Darfur was declared a genocide
as it continues until it is over…who knew
when Ari Fleshier warned “watch what you say”
he was talking to Bill Moyer
40 year man getting fired.
Who didn’t know pre election
Dan Rather was sacrificed in order to kill the story
Pat Robertson, Michael Savage, Rush Limbaugh
brought to you by Disney
Jeff Gannon’s 200 news passes to the Whitehouse porque?

108th CONGRESS / 2d Session / S. CON. RES. 124
Declaring genocide in Darfur, Sudan.
IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES
July 13, 2004

108th CONGRESS / 2d Session / H. CON. RES. 467
Declaring genocide in Darfur, Sudan.
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
June 24, 2004

neigh onto one full year later
the killing, raping, maiming fields
still running bloody red
how slow can we be?
how conservative can our humanity can we get?

how many days since Darfur was declared a genocide
as it continues…until it is over…

in Darfur
every day is a new memorial day
