I. WHERE WERE YOU?

god
where were you?
where have you been?
where were you that fateful day
anno domini
april 20 1889
the day you let birth a monster?
you remember
god
the one whose surname was schicklgruber
whose kampf
you must already have read before
he changed his name to
hitler
surely you must have seen
the future and what it held
didn’t you?

god
i wonder
how many others were birthed
that same day
or on days which followed or preceded
births of
your chosen people
if we are to believe your books
people whom you allowed to suffer and endure
endless torture
and finally ignominious death
where was their reward?
you know the reward
of which i speak
the one you promise in your books
that speaks of happiness eternal
where are you
god?
where were you?
can happiness of any sort really derive
through murder
and through smoke and ash
of burning bones?

god
as you floated on your cosmic cloud
apparently somehow blinded
to the battles waged below on your earth
did you ever hear the screams?
we all know of armageddon
you’ve written of it in your books
but have you heard the
mutterings
now spoken with contempt
of other places
and other names which have come to mean
armageddon
to murdered millions?

god
may i presume
to bore you with a question
or two?
i won’t trifle with the easy ones
you probably had other business
close at hand those days
you know
those pressing cosmic things
but why
god
why hitler?
why the Holocaust?
is there something you’ve
not told us
in your books?

god
please forgive
my final questions
but i must ask them for myself
and for the dead who only speak with silenced voice
do you exist at all?
if so
why?

    Szkoda że to Wy nie wytiiwslaście ? Ukradł osobiście grę ? Nie, kupił legalnie w sklepie. Ma prawo odsprzedać grę. Pierwszy raz tu jestem i już mam o Was wyrobione zdanie. Oby Was kiedyś pracodawca wywalił z pracy, bo śmieliście kupić grę i ją daj boże odsprzedać.
