Who am I now?

Who am I
If I don’t have a name
But a number?

Who am I
If the star on my arm 
Makes me smaller?

Who am I 
If cattle are treated
Better than me?

Who am I 
If my family, I,
Will never see?

Who am I 
If monotony rules
And I live it?

Who am I 
If they told me to work
And I did it?

Who am I 
If I take orders from
Only a few?

Who am I
If, at death, they’ll say I’m
Only a Jew?
