Back Next Sick Fantasy

A man's sick fantasy began it
and reality made it more
everyone shoved to live
when everyone should have
hastened to die
these arenas were not
Roman arenas
these people were not those Christians
marching triumphantly to their deaths
These arenas were concentration camps
and these Jews limped toward their death
godless. No one sand. The end was dark and final.

Irwin R. Shaw - August 2nd 1986
