Children of War

 

children of war

fallen like snow drops

to the waiting ground...

soon, like snow, melted

yet in memory a

white pure innocent field...

gone...bombed...shot...

gassed...so many gone..

 

in camps violated

beyond any reach

of understanding

experimented on

by mengele and

others seeking the

pure, aryan

master race...

 

snowdrops...

still drifting

planted in innocence

in the life

to come...

war kills the innocent

here is its

ultimate evil...

 

George Coombs
