saint cynosure ( Ken Bennight )

Adolf Hitler

He had the dream,
to hear the screams,
of a million aching men.
He sold himself with rhetoric,
and the nightmare soon began.

Hypnotized and blind to lies,
a people showed no pity.
Captured towns and vandalized,
a thousand helpless cities.
Tortured, gassed and served starvation,
to a gentle peaceful nation.
And the whole world stared as if not to care,
with not one thought of aggravation.

Brought every human into war,
every single nation.
brothers lost.
The torture to the sister.

All because the madness of the wicked,
Adolf Hitler.

    Never should we forget the Devils amongst us and their evil deeds.
    Nor should the World forget that it was the US that got rid of these Evil Weeds.
