Schindler’s List

He heard the gun click

And felt the cold dread of terror

He was a victim of circumstances

A slave who’d forgotten his past life

There was a quick check for bullets

But all that eluded him

He’d never been so frightened even in his despair

At the second click

His bladder gave up on him

Spread from front to back

That was the least of his worries

Fear was a living being in him

He waited to hear the sound of gunshots but all he heard was the emptiness, loud and deafening

His tormentor was confused

A gun well oiled and contained bullets had refused to work

He reached for his second gun

Several clicks later and a blow to his head

He was suddenly alone


Frightened but alive

He didn’t understand what had happend

He was Rabbi

Witty, funny, brash at times. I'm the big sister you never had, your female bestie and you know we can't hide the truth from you, us and our big mouths....but it's all done with love. FYI, you need me!
