Nazis, each of us




The Jew's Song






My eyes still sting in shame


I fear to utter my name


Lest I be branded


Unsung and unhanded


Unmanned and unlanded


Just for being a Jew.





My history lies in ruins


My children sing no tunes


Lest I be taken away


Torn and turned astray


Battered into a block of clay


Just for being a Jew.





My breath chokes out of a chamber


A nightmare none shall dismember


Lest I be applauded


Mourned, mined and lauded


Divined and defrauded


Just for being a Jew.
