The Aftermath Of World War Ii - Poem by Bob McBobson

Evil, pain, strife, war
Were the bells that rung right here
All Europe could hear

Silent Russian snow
Honors the Stalingrad dead
They saved their homeland

Beneath of England
Lancasters and Hurricanes
Lie in the ocean

Light was Zero in
the Land of the Rising Sun
They died for nothing

Near Bergen-Belsen
And Auschwitz; many are not
Properly buried

The smell of corpses
Lingers from Beijing until
Macau; murdered

So now we must vow
To know the sacrifice and
Never repeat it

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Written entirely in haikus. World War II, even though I am not saying it was good in a moral sense, is a subject I am very passionate about.
