A poem about the Holocaust--- a thing quite deserving of a decent piece of literature (hope i've done it justice)... I've written it from a NAZI PERSPECTIVE...i'm not prejudice against Jewish people myself...in fact, i find them quite pleasant. The only thing you need to know, is that Jews were required to wear a yellow star....The Star of David. Happy reading.

Yellow Stars

I watched the life drain

from his eyes…

And in every drop of shame that fell

from him, and his attire,

I glimpsed his darkened morning.

I watched him pour himself

over the concrete

-like forbidden liquid mercury-

Cohesive, in his fluid state,

and yet, I saw him drowning.

I watched him latch onto

his surroundings…

Begging each brother in his view

to sustain and support

his final earnest pleading.

I watched them beg us all

For mercy….

But we had our orders,

and they had their scars:

Since we had the rifles

…. and they had Yellow Stars.
