Evading the Horrors of the Holocaust

hidden not to elicit 
a trifle response
spiteful mordacious
shackled on a horde race

wizened with years

The Drums of War

Trump has slammed the establishment's
beating of the drums of war with Russia.
For all of us, it should be more than clear
that a nuclear war with Moscow is very near.

Apocalypse

We're aiming thousands of nuclear weapons
at each other and are ready to start shooting.
Will tens of millions of Americans die...just
because some crazy old woman hates Putin?

Short Holocaust poem by May Fenn| Details |

Total War


Bitterness, loneliness,
Anger and pain,
Whole worlds suffer
Yet none may gain.
Frustration, futility,
Strife without end,
Mankind’s in the dust
Death comes as a friend.

The Stars of the Underground

The stars that glimmer most, 
Are the stars often mistaken for stones
For they are not stones-
They are monuments of those past,
Who have worked to the bone, 
For masterment and marvel, 
For love unatoned.

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 Leon Datu| Details |

Liberte


When blind terror rages and burns
a city of love that now churns---
innocence, a prison.
The time will come as Fate returns,
justice for all seasons
O Liberte, newly risen.
