TOMMYROT

TOMMYROT


Flabbergasted – a swimming head

A cold intrusion

A sullen bed.

Cantankerousness

Apt delusion

Inept in death

Dyspeptic relation

Cryptic tree

Unjust incarceration

Liberate me.

Short Holocaust poem by Melissa De Vos| Details | |

Holocaust

Fear 
Anguish 
Resentment
These are the words 
that come to mind. 
Family members were
hard to find. 
People couldn't be 
who they were.
Making their
lives a total blur. 
If only for a 
moment would 
they recall.
Feelings of 
being trapped
in a cell wall.  

Copyright © Melissa De Vos

Short Holocaust poem by dani wil| Details | |

The Tin Men

The tin men
in a fortress of smoke.
Death all around,
hungry for oil.

Their eyes in the storm
divide and cleanse
to be dragged into the mud
once again.

It rumbles on.
One and another,
one ceases, 
one gets stronger.

A rainbow of shoes, 
the broken tin men.

Limerick: Once a tongue-twisting Pop Man-Eater

Limerick : Once a tongue-twisting Pop Man-Eater

Once a tongue-twisting Pop Man-Eater
Went on rampage with just her Strummer
Tunes she hissed were so sweet
Crunched Frenchmen by the fleet
Watch Out ! ‘Merica ! for this Nor’-Easter !

Rondelet: Nuclear Rot in bowels

Rondelet : (Nuclear) Rot in bowels

Rot in bowels
Sealed tight in cans, retarded bombs
Rot in bowels
Nuclear waste Earth sucks capsules
Poisoned gift to children in dumps
Let’s dance in White Night till Hell comes
(Nuclear) Rot in bowels.

For Primo Levi

For Primo Levi

it darkened more
as light shone through
and the haunting past stabbed

you felt
wept
screamed
as
silently the blind were led
'thieves' you called them
emerging from nowhere
yet everywhere
'thieves' you called them
no one
yet everyone
you felt
wept
screamed
till
finally

you left

Holocaust Haiku Eight

Work makes free, a lie 
Notches on a sickle, a tally 
Death's head obliterates 




( Yes, I know that this is not a true Haiku, if we all follow the rules...5/7/5 words per line )
I chose to tweak the "rules" to make the grammar flow better with commas, etc, 
If anyone objects, I am happy will delete this haiku. )
