When I was small
It was fun
Soldiers, toys and walls
The fake sounds
The fake wars
Between cowboys and Indians
Unrelenting bullets
And rubber bands
Turn into
What’s real
Blood on white sands
Hitler with Europe in his hands
Descending over many lands
Signs of Jewish bans
Slaves, slaughter and
Over a Nation
Everywhere I see
All around me
