Why ( a holocaust poem)

I wake up in the morning
and the pain begins,
Starvation, beatings, disease
when will it ever end...

There is blood on my elbows
and blood on my knees,
my clothes are torn
I just want to be free...

I am what I am
I guess thats why I'm here,
I've been here three months
And I'm numb with fear...

I pray to God
and ask him why,
what did I do
to deserve to die...

Nuclear Armageddon

How is our mad world going to end?
With a deadly bang or a whimper?
Most people rarely stop to think of
Hiroshima and Nagasaki these days.
When they do, they usually think
that the Japanese fully deserved it:

“Didn't they attack Pearl Harbor?
We vaporized their women and kids
only because Tojo killed our men!
We incinerated their two cities to
save the lives of our fighting men
who were about to invade Japan.”

That's how the world keeps going....
A pompous, loud-mouthed general,
his testosterone level running high,
wants to teach Moscow a lesson
never to defy a global Empire.
A proud and imperious admiral,
aircraft carriers on his sword belt, 
wants to teach the Chinese who's 
the boss in the South China Sea.

Bellicose diplomats want to give
Assad the full Gaddafi treatment,
opening a new nuclear game of 
chicken with the Russians in Syria.
Everyone in Russia, including Putin,
expects a nuclear war sooner or later.

As the French say, the more things
change, the more they stay the same. 
People (not just the Bourbons) have
learned nothing and forgotten nothing.

This is how our world will end.
This is how our world will end.
This is how our world will end.
Our crazy world will end with a
roaring, fiery, annihilating bang 
and then a ghastly final whimper!
