• “They’ll come in the night” my mother would say
    So inside of the basement we lay
    All was silent, there wasn’t a sound
    We could not risk letting ourselves be found
    We can’t let the soldiers know that were here
    We’ll be alright, don’t shed a tear
    First leather boots, and belt buckles I see
    Those menacing eyes, are they scouring for me?
    Many gunshots go off in the town
    Then something I saw made my heart drown
    There was my mother, who was out in the light
    Surrounded by soldiers, what terror, what fright!
    She caught my eye and mouthed a goodbye
    As the evil inside him took aim cry
