all of those people

my rs homework was to write a poem about the holocaust so here it is:(

All of those people
Standing on the platform
Young and old, Strong and weak
About to take a one way trip to what they don’t know

As the minutes tick slowly by one by one
Crammed in a small carriage of steel
They shall take a journey
They shall never forget

Sadly they will never win
As the war ends and
Survivors say their prayers of thanks
Miss fortune of many that we will never forget

How could people laugh and smirk
As people like themselves die before their eyes
Like dogs them shoot they down for fun
yet we just watch and stay away

Don’t say that rubbish that we didn’t know
We all read it in the papers and heard it from our neighbours
We could have stopped it but I suppose we were too scared
Yet we sent our troops to fight against theirs

History now lies beneath our very feet
But we never think till we learn
A crime can turn into a mad killing act
And I hope that it will never happen again
