Author's note-in remembrance of a brother and sister.
A darkness descended o'er the land,
as it once had happened in Egypt of old.
Caused not as before by the mad flight of locusts,
but by a new "Pharoah" who sought to redefine “truth”
by murdering G-d.
Was there no one who did not know ...
wherein books are burned so too will humans be?
Hans and Sophie Scholl did.
They planted a seed for a renewal of hope-that from the ashes of:
a “white rose” might still be grown.
You see it was not that there were no more good gardeners,
only that ... there were so few.
