located on underside

blood transfusions
wounded unconscious
missing dog tags

war games crimes ended
catch beastly black rats
war crimes blood riddled

war atrocities ignored ended
Allies keen to catch scapegoats
Waffen-SS members desired

an accounting to be rendered
judgement trial vengeance selections
Waffen-SS type witch hunted

due to hideous volume of war crimes
committed by fanatical Waffen-SS units
post-war showcase Nuremberg Trials

Waffen-SS are collectively branded
a criminal organization condemned
due to Nazi Party loyalty connections

involvement documented war crimes
waffen SS blood group tattoos
used to accurately identify SS members

'prima facie' evidence established
as part of the Waffen-SS leading
to potential arrest prosecutions

leading to Waffen-SS prosecutions
occasionally war crimes executions
gallows appointed hangman's noose

'prima facie' on first encounter first
blush at first sight Waffen-SS identities
are self evident legally fact established

but blood group super loop hawks
eagles fly free in perfect inconsistencies
not all Waffen-SS had blood tattoos

some men were away on tattoo days
men transferred from other branches
of military training to Waffen-SS

men transferred from the Allgemeine SS
the 'General' or non-military SS
did not receive Waffen-SS blood tattoos

increasingly after 1943 Waffen-SS
recruits did not receive blood tattoos
by 1945 few accept blood tattoos

non-SS wounded Wehrmacht soldiers
treated in SS hospitals were blood tattooed
post war Waffen-SS falsely categorized

rise free blood group super loop hawks
eagles fly free in perfect inconsistencies
SS veterans tattoo less detection escaped

SS escapees important who capture evaded
Auschwitz Angel of Death Josef Mengele
Adolf Eichmann's 'best man' Alois Brunner

both ghost escaped lacking SS blood tattoos
blood group super loop nasty heinous vultures
evaded question identity perception minefields

    Thank you for bringing about some clarity (With the poem, and with that last comment) in an otherwise extremely clouded world. I cannot and will not forget events of such you, and others like you have described. Death and injustice has us stop in our tracks, especially when we can vicariously experience the trauma. I feel we all have a responsibility to recognize the examples of good, bad, and ugly in order to transmit true value to ourselves...including current and future generations. History does not repeat itself if we do not allow it to. We are history in the making. (Report) Reply

    In reply to Leslie Philibert who has ‘a lot of trouble with the poem’ ‘Seeding Master Race Hate Into Nazi German Identity’ and believes I should write about ‘a guy shot today in Times Square’. That would be a sociopolitical poem, so I eagerly looked up and read through Philibert's poems because the theme interests me. You have written some nice nature poems but I could not find any sociopolitical poems in your postings?

    Yes I have been writing sociopolitical poems for decades Leslie Philibert. ‘Tribute’ written in June 1982 is such a poem beginning ‘A loud report! / His skull bursts open/ the gunman’s bullet/ exterminates another life.’ We hope it satisfies. I was also writing the then taboo theme youth suicide, in poems like ‘State Of 20th Century Man’ written in January 1982, which New Zealand and Australian periodicals at the time sympathized with, but would not publish. I even beat the author of the famous novel ‘The Da Vinci Code’ 2003, by Dan Brown to the punch, writing about the holy bloodline and the Holy Grail, in the poem ‘The Secret Of The Grail’ in April 1982.

    With regard to war crimes and themes of inhumanity, there is no 60 year statute of limitations on such heinous crimes. Staying with the home of Times Square, a brief literary look at two American poets I admire who have written poems Leslie Philibert will have ‘a lot of trouble with’. Anne Sexton who won the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 1967, wrote the poem ‘After Auschwitz’. To quote only one stanza and discuss the meaning behind why this stanza may have been written. Nazi Germany did kill babies in the games, documented cases include guards throwing babies into the air and then bayoneting them to death. Sexton wrote

    as black as a hook,
    overtakes me.
    Each day,
    each Nazi
    took, at 8: 00 A.M., a baby
    and sauteed him for breakfast
    in his frying pan.
    Another of my favourite American poets, my American literature professor at university spent an entire lecture on the poem ‘Daddy’ by Sylvia Plath. To quote only two stanzas from the poem, stanza 7 and then stanza 10.

    An engine, an engine
    Chuffing me off like a Jew.
    A Jew to Dachau, Auschwitz, Belsen.
    I began to talk like a Jew.
    I think I may well be a Jew.

    stanza 10
    Not God but a swastika
    So black no sky could squeak through.
    Every woman adores a Fascist,
    The boot in the face, the brute
    Brute heart of a brute like you.

    The question which might occur to a reader, is why is the theme so important to such esteemed poets. The inhumanity, brutality and scale of the slaughter are but a few reasons. Ignorance of the issues and deleting these events from history, risks increased repetitions of such events, and most informed readers will easily be able to list post World War examples including ‘The killing Fields’.

    These killings are not a new phenomena. ‘Usurper Antiochus IV Defiled First Temple In Jerusalem’ mentions the killing of eighty thousand (including women, children, infants, the old) and a further eighty thousand sold into slavery in three days. ‘The Fall Of The Temple In 70 A.D.! ’ mentions an estimated 1,100,000 Jews killed at that time. My ‘La Guernica’ poems deal with Pablo Picasso’s famous anti-war bombing of La Guernica. Oops, sorry, we are not allowed to mention crimes against humanity over the Leslie Philibert expiratory sixty years old date. No, my poem ‘La Guernica '33 Dais'’ discusses Antonio Banderas playing Pablo Picasso in the forth coming moie because these events are important and should not be swept under the mat.

    Should I be writing contemporary sociopolitical poems as Leslie Philibert believes? Yes I do, including about 60 poems referencing the Arab Spring, set in Egypt and a few on Syria including ‘First Lament For Aleppo’ 28.7.2012. Perhaps it is time Leslie Philibert practices what he preaches and writes a sociopolitical poem, as so many of us who feel strongly about humanities inhumanity to man, so often are forced to do, because most will not. The shooting of a man, not a dismissive guy ‘shot today in Times Square’ might be a good start. Try to deal a little with the why?
    In conclusion, like many poets who grieve for the suffering inflicted upon minorities due to racism and intolerance, I also write upon this topic in detail. ‘Stone Cross’ was an early such write. My holocaust files contain titles of most of the others. While teaching the history of World War 1 and 2, I was asked to write poems about the holocaust, before and after the Holocaust Teaching Ban which became effective in the UK in March 2008.The UK removed The Holocaust from its school curriculum, to show the EU super power Germany in a better light. No the holocaust is still taught piece meal, although Education Secretary, (Lord) Kenneth Baker, is still actively trying to remove it, one reason being Baker’s important cut-off date for the teaching of this subject.
    To answer Baker let us quote Charles Brickdale. Speaking about The Holocaust, Brickdale said “It should not be confined to History – and can’t be if the arts and humanities are to be properly taught. Its impact on literature, art and music can hardly be ignored and its lessons for all time will speak through those responses for generations to come.
    The Holocaust is distinctive because it was both an eruption of long-standing hatreds rooted in the darkest superstition and a coldly planned, scientifically executed, technically advanced project for the mass production of death. Its pall fell across the whole of Europe and our country nearly broke itself in the struggle to defeat its perpetrators. As such it has deep truths to disclose. Its wholesale excision from the intellectual and moral formation of future generations is unthinkable.”
    Thus in a free society, we chose to read and not read topics as we please. Philibert believes the killing of ‘a guy shot today in Times Square’ is more important than 12 million killed, tortured and enslaved by the SS during World War II; then Philibert should write accordingly. Philibert claims that ‘for a short time (Germany?) was taken over by a maniac. No Europe and the world was engulfed in this conflict. Was it merely a short time? Not for those who lived through it and survived this mass extermination.

    'For a short time' was not short, the first Nazi killings of the mentally and physically handicapped, political prisoners, homosexuals ect began in camps and various other places in 1933. All persecuted people regardless of age, race and gender must have a voice to speak for them; ignorance and forgetting the crimes of the past is our worst enemy. These victims lso deserve a voice to speak for them. It was interesting when I wrote to 'Time Magazine', 'The New Yorker' etc in defense of Muslims being killed in Europe during the tragic break up of Yugoslavia, that these magazines had no opinion on the topic. I learned then that defending victims, or at least addressing the issues, invites attacks from those in passionate support of such nationalistic crimes and indifference from the masses. Sometimes conscience must dictate our actions in face of all obstacles encountered.

    Thank you for the diligence and patience of this reply. I shall return to it - and to your poem - again.

    I think Leslie was being rude without any need. This is far more than just a WWII poem. Also not fair because you're one of those poets who pay a lot of attention to daily news. The consequences of ego inflation (I recently discovered the term via Jung) easily become nacio inflation and this is very much a 21 century issue inherited from the 20th. Accordingly it's useful to go back in the past and see how it all started. I don't think Germany could in any way be insulted they fight Nazism within the borders of their country up to this day, and so does Italy and so should any country because Nazism as well as Bolsevism as the concepts of super races/classes are dangerous in any country.

    I have a lot of trouble with this poem. If you wan´t to transport information about the second World War then
    historians do it better.If you wan`t to write about inhumanity then don`t go on about a war that ended over 60 years
    ago then look at the news today. (wasn`t a guy shot today in Times Square?) . This is a really primitive look at
    a country that has produced some of the greatest minds of the twentieth century and for a short time was taken over by a maniac for very complex reasons. This is a nasty, racist poem that supports, very ironically, the arguments it claims to reject..

    The first word of this poem is 'insert' i.n.s.e.r.t and therefore the first line of this poem does not read 'inser an attitude'. The PH dictionary has bugs in it and continues to spell d.r.o.p as dropp ruining the perfect beauty of many posted poems (Report) Reply
