Poetry Corner ; “The unwitting Hitler within parents”

The unwitting Hitler within parents

Two sisters
some 40 years ago
a purchase by mother and father of a gleaming red tricycle
for the Other
with the victim despite salty semi-professional whining receiving nothing
as parental government doles out it favouritism
contracting with the grey matter commandant to supervise the laying
of the barbed wire
and land mines against Viennese
schooled underground fighters
who tack exit lights in the surrounding woods
once a week for thirty minutes
