Unternehmen Barbarossa


the bitter legion marches in
ageless, lethal and merciless
defeating Bonaparte and Hitler
masses tremble at its advances
like the earth underfoot of an army
in the wake of its passing
empty quiet and destruction
trees lay stripped and streets desolate
as people cower in their homes
seeking refuge from the onslaught
living off of provisions lain in shelters
waiting for winter’s soldiers to pass
