Hitler's Mother

...What was she to do?

Poor Hitler's Mother

What is a mother to do
Even the wisest womanly Jew
Could scarcely have known
Or imagined or dreamed
And even if she had known
What she was to have done
If the world was doomed
To end in Fire or Ice

She could not have known
That her son would be born
Half bloodline tied to fire
Singing Songs of King Solomon
Half breed and dark knight
Hospitaller and Warlock
Baptised by St. John

Being the son of a Jewish girl
He appeared to everyone as
Alien as Cain to his homeland
Brilliant as the Antichrist
But more lost like an artist
Gripping emotional as a vice
Secret Father, Secret Fire

What Mother would conceive it ?
That he would practice his Vodou
Or would it be Jew-dou, and who
Would unleash it to be done unto
One after another after sister
After brother and another and
Another and another
And another -

Cold must have been the days
Gone by just silently awaiting
And wondering why she waits
And even if she had known
What she was to have done
No lifeline, no fates for
Nothing matters, no counsel
No one offers consolation
To Poor Hitler's Mother

yes, and she was more beautiful than any Ugly fruit on the stand. His father made him, I think.

I didn't know that Hitler had a mother.

This has to be the most unique poem I've read on here, besides epigramman's pieces. I loved it. Wonderful thing you did here, and I can't wait to get into more.

A very interesting subject. Neither Hitler or his mother or any of his family looked remotely Aryan. They were not even German they are from Austria.

It just makes you wonder if Hitler was never born or died in childhood....maybe all those millions of people would not have been killed.

Or if millions of people had not been killed, maybe there would have been something worse than Hitler that would have risen into power. A million to one odds, that is not a great bet in my book. No offense to any Jews or other people who were murdered in Hitler's dark works. Keep on Hubbing. Blake4d

What a thoughtful poem. I have wondered this about the moms from Klebold and Harris from Columbine. Good job.
