The Birth Of A Girl The Birth Of A Boy

In a forest a girl was born   
A girl born oh so poor
This girl then caused this world now torn
Her birth opens a sore

But we do not now this girl mourn
She was left some money
A thrifty woman not to scorn
Then a taste of honey

She met a man she was forlorn
Bore a son Alois
Unwed and aging, no ring worn
No ring, so still a Miss.

Her bastard son none could be warned
When his mother did wed
He gave a name the world did scorn
A name that all wished dead

If his mother knew what was born
Hitler the name we know
I wonder would she have  been torn?
To give him birth, or no.

    The meter is so hard and I left you out to dry--I'm sorry, I was on vacation--congrats on placement though!!

    An Austrian by birth - whatever he did, he had a mother. I guess if she had lived, she would have died a 1,000 deaths on his behalf, wishing to take the burden onto herself - just my thought on the matter. Congratulations on your win, Mandy. Love, Su

    Okay, I know it's you now and I love the take on this slice of history--I'll help adjust the meter while keeping your excellent entry in tact. Later Mandy!

    Mandy, I don't even like the guy, but I don't think that God would want us to take His place and be judge and jury over the life of a child. I however recognize that a lot of innocent people have suffered at the hands of this cruel man and hate for him comes easily even to the point of wishing his mom had taken the light out of his eyes even before they were opened. Him aside though, this is a beautifully composed piece. Thanks for the good wishes, the same and more for you one love Joy Wells

    scarey thought, I never really gave much thought to Hitler's Mom before. Intrestingly he was quite an artist if only he had been accepted into the art school he had applied for perhaps history would have gone in a different direction.
