The attempted Extermination of an entire class of people


If you deny the holocaust then you are just another modern Nazi

The Hollow cost of hate


132 mouths agape 
dry black holes 
in soundless screams
eye sockets glare 
some empty or filled
with looks of "WHY?"
unseeing gazes 
of astonishment or
with a glutinous 
melting mass
beneath those melting 
eyes flesh shudders
arms and legs are now 
just brittle toothpicks 
tumbled and jumbled together
sticking out in all directions
in flesh and blue pickup sticks
splayed and arrayed
around genitals 
shrunken with fear
shaved heads gleaming in 
the waning sunlight
flesh hanging in folds
over sunken bellies
tiny ones still sucking
a dessicated thumb 
for sustenance
breasts like empty sacs
could not feed their babies
from the hunger 
that rumbled
once beneath them
the stench of 
carbon monoxide
and feces floated 
between the buzzing 
of the flies
feasting on this 
pile of famine
It was just four 
sun bleached
photos that a soldier shot
in Dachau in 1945......
and made real by 
his prescence there 
I knew him well and he has
shown only a  few 
the horrors 
he'd brought back
I counted babies crumpled 
in rag doll fashion
and children sleeping under 
an adult hood of 
dead flesh above them
some folks say 
the Holocaust was staged
not real... produced by 
tricks and fake photos
but I've talked to a 
man who stood there
and shot four pictures 
and had to stop
to vomit and couldn't 
take any more
I've seen the 
hollow cost of hate
drip from the beaded saline
in his eyes and 
in 58 year old 
kodak moments from hell
the price is ungodly
and hell is full of 
Nazi's in jumbled piles
of agonized living,
burning flesh
choking forever on 
fire, and brimstone gas
as they mimic forever
what they left behind
a legacy of hate
in the over six million lost
that formed the many piles
of a precious people
