Auschwitz 2015

Skin and bone, the haunted stares

Is proof enough, that no one cares


Thousands of shoes, a mountain of hair

Holiday suitcases, going nowhere


Pain and indignity, how much can they bear

Oh dear lord, are you there?


Many lost lives, so we could be free

Ordinary people, like you and like me


Another new year and the bell tolls

Keep in your thoughts, all the lost souls


Auschwitz lives on, so we never forget

Men, women and children we’ve not even met


Keep them alive in your heart and your mind

Seventy years on, for all of mankind.


Dedicated to all who were brutalised or lost their lives and to those who fought to free them.
