Antisemitism

As obscene as the breaking of glass,

Or the whisper of gas from the past.

“The jews are mean” you said.

Dead bodies in a camp.

The lamp shines on the food divine.

You drink more wine.

A train somewhere in the distance passes,

Somewhere glass smashes.

      Thank you Maja. Auden once remarked that “Poetry makes nothing happen”. Unfortunately my poem won’t prevent a single jew from being insulted or attacked. I wish my words could stop these things. Kevin
