Hitler's Last Days

i think of him…
history slowly moves on
wounded by his long shadow…
predatory fire
fuelled by search for
a master race
his mind ensnared by demons…
yet, war breeds war
(in war there are no winners)
his lust for power
was broken yet…
were his nazis the only hunters?
but now…it is over
berlin ruined…battered shells
of buildings monuments to
the city’s own mass destruction
like the city he too
is destroyed…dead inside…
there…underground
he escapes…suicide
rescues him as
it does others…Goebbels
with his innocent family…
the ruins are haunted by hard
questions each wearing its
death mask waiting for
the searching mind…
