Poetry Corner: “Downtown Treblinka”

Downtown Treblinka

hemmed into hamlets by the awesome guardposts
the weary beaten stagger
into black Calcuttian holes
to be transported to prosperous futility
whisked by gleaming publicly funded expense
only marred by the spots of the unhappily assimilated
broken only by their black boots
stomped through lack of humanity
or lined up on the wall of advanced humility
cutthroat bestiality
experimented on by clever wizards
soothed by taxed juices and coloured flashes
that numb
and bring “round the clock relief”
to the voluntary prisoners
and arthritic stricken
