Dead Symbols

My artist daughter and my son-in-law,
obsessed with symbols, occupied by themes,
tried posting swastikas as charms, but saw
the Internet accuse them of extremes.
We told them it would happen, for we knew
that though the lucky origin was true,
the shape was foully murdered by the strike
of Hitler and his hideous third Reich.

We’re witnessing a similarity
with current politics – the ruling right
(King Trump and court) insist that day is night,
and devastate what was the GOP.
Republicans are gone – the future story
should name anew or harken back to Tory.
