Justice for the Atrocities of War

How much can verdicts soothe a grieving heart
and what solace can blood provide
to a bleeding soul, grown too pale,
for the loss of everyone, worth alive?

It has almost been half a century
since the war for liberation
and its vicious atrocities
shook and bled the native population,
though after nine months of cruel war,
they emerged sovereign and victorious.

Natives much less fortunate abound
in the tales of history,
where they had perished in the fight
against an invasion to occupy.

When a teeming Europe on many sails
invaded the untamed continent
between two oceans, fierce and deep,
the native Indians suffered such a fate.

Had the Axis powers prevailed in Normandy,
the Nuremberg would have been for Truman instead!
