A Poem Called Endings

Here is a poem I wrote called Endings

At the end of a dictatorship

Statues of rulers are pulled off pedestals. 

At the end of a democracy

The individual is placed on a pedestal.

At the end of a dictatorship

Walls are torn down.

At the end of a democracy

Gates and walls are built

For people to live behind.
