Hopeless Crying

One day foreign Jews were expelled
Crammed into cattle cars
Deportees quickly forgotten
That's war

Jews ordered to get off and onto waiting trucks
Trucks headed towards a forest
Everybody forced to dig trenches
Gestapo shot their prisoners

Moishe
Joy was gone
People refused to believe his tails
People refused to listen

He wept and pleaded
Jews, listen to me!
I no longer care to live, I am alone
I came back to warn you

--Joshua A., 7th-8th  Grade
