In the powerful empire of Germany
The people lived in harmony
Their life seemed to be peaceful
To help others they were always graceful.
Then came the First World War
Germany fought hoping to gain victory
But success seemed to be far
And this led to a chain of events in history.
Germany lost its oversea colonies
To the people was done lot of felonies
It lost many of its valuable minerals
And the Germans were considered criminals.
May youths lost their job
And some started to sob
The unemployed ran helter-skelter
Because they couldn’t find shelter.
Then came Hitler with a great passion
He promised relief for the people’s tension
He wanted to weed out the foreign conspiracies
And replace them with fresh new agencies.
His first target was the Jews
He valued them to as small as dew
He concentrated them in camps
Even though they were innocent like lamps.
Jews were subjected to the final solution
But there was no one to organize a revolution
Hitler was responsible to many people’s funeral
He was an unforgivable criminal.
