“THE ONE WHO WAITS!” a.k.a.: “ So Happy! To See You!” Fry Day 01/26/2018.
Our tired Allied soldiers, were there, at Auschwitz’s Gates,
When we spied this one lone prisoner, the one who always waits,
‘Midst blood, (and) discolored urine (pause) And vile-decomposition,
6 million war-torn bodies, In varied trans-si-i-tion!
Yet, just this one prisoner,
We saw that fateful morn,
So thin And so frail,
One shake-y prisoner, ‘Cause the place, it was so cold,
He stood with quite the smile! We thought that he was bold!
And, as we approached, his voice we all heard:
“You’re here! Yippee-doo-dah!” he said, just like a bird.
And brightest sunshine
Came out from his eyes,
And he was simply waiting, amidst all of these lies!
Of sad, human suffering – and cruelty so true,
But, he was NOT suffering;
And he wasn’t blue,
He was just waiting –
Accepting this day,
And a few of our soldiers – got down to pray:
To one frail, Jewish boy, whose love caught our souls:
And blessed all German soldiers –
And us-guys, out on patrol!.
