For our kids

There are three reasons to envy kids.

They do not need to tell lies.
They do not have to fake smiles.
They are not bound to take responsibilities.

I envy kids.

In these times of tyranny and terror
We need a cellar beneath our feet 
For our kids, to hide them there.

The book thief, she was a kid
 the land of Nazis, she survived
Her life story was narrated by death.

Our kids will survive too, dear death
You are welcome only when they age,
In the meanwhile

We will grow flowers in our graveyards
