Contradictory to Niemoller, Scott Simon's, " SEVEN DECADES ON," use a different type of sentence structure in his style to contribute to his tone.

Due to evidence both throughout the poem and the author’s life, the speaker of this poem is most likely Lee himself. Throughout this poem, there is a substantial amount of evidence which suggests that the speaker, or Lee, is remembering the times when his father was alive, the influence that he had on his life, and the changing thoughts
You can understand why they took Mr. Rogers or Captain Betts, but why imprison a ten-year-old boy?". This was a quote from Mrs. Meeker regarding Jerry’s confusing and ironic death.
