Sardines

Caught in a web of hatred
And marinated in shame
Packed and packaged into tight containers

Lucky to be shipped away
From sunny Porto
To the safety of Ellis Island

Still uneasy, though,
They’ll change their last name
Forget old customs and learn new ways

The topic will be eaten
Forced down – not fully digested
Shoved away, until their grandchildren ask.

Will they regurgitate?
