bombed London during the blitz
As frightened people, cursing Fritz,
Tearfully listened to the ominous, exploding sound.
Long-lasting this nourished hate
Of an arrogant enemy who sealed his fate
By destroying and leveling a culture to the ground!
scornful foe of ritual tea
Boasted loudly with obvious glee
No better than barbarians of yesteryear!
English resolved with rightful wrath
All-out war the only path
As rage replaced natural fear!
single aim seek and kill
Highest praise for those with skill
No quarter asked as the fit survives!
of war as changing tide
Persistence and pain we must abide
Continuous stream of snuffed out lives!
sweet in the foe’s land
Awesome weapons ready to hand
Unimaginable force leaving a permanent, ugly scar!
Dresden of elegant charm
A helpless victim of Mars’ raised arm
Ravaged and raked by the hell of modern war!
bombers night and day
Bent on vengeance to repay
A maniac who lost the right to call himself a man!
art of finest creation
Gone with destruction of this tragic nation
Consumed by flames spreading like a widening fan!
all, cousin or wife
Young, old, filled with life
Perished in fire storm that charred this city!
to this horror scene
Struck dumb at all the carnage seen
Crawled from hiding stunned and giddy.
Dresden sisters with a past
Radiant health again at last
Intertwined fate shared and forever fused!.
the tenor of a people’s will
Both peace loving and remain so till
Man forgets the shame of being abused!.
