Jesus / Sleep Comes Easy - Ernst Luchs

Jesus

Jesus was

An anchor baby.


Sleep Comes Easy

At Dachau,

At Belsen,

At Auschwitz,

"Mercy!

Mercy!

Mercy!"

They cried

With tears

Of terror

In their eyes.

The pleas died out,

Bodies carted out.

God shrugged

His shoulders

And turned away.

So much for

His mysterious ways.

Sleep

Comes easy

For those

Born to kill.
