Remembering Adolph Eichman

 

always in

the shadow of war

now, quietly

i think

of him...

eyes of history

on the man

tense...thin

on shadowed

path to

journey's end...

he died not

seeming to be evil...

victim of a deep madness

of war and its consequences

a cog in a machine?

yes, yet his name

casts a long shadow

over history's watching

the innocent...justice still

alone among ruins of

dresden, guernica ,coventry

still carried innocent dead...

still asks 'who are the real criminals?'

death's in war...innocent

flowers torn from

life giving ground made holy

as their blood still flows...

all that war creates

is victims...
