Berlin Boxer

His face caught my attention
and held me mesmerised
his picture told a story
of a boxer on the rise

The champion of Berlin
a future to behold
but born to Jewish blood lines
it didn’t quite unfold

They stripped him of his title
his freedom and his home
a Jewish concentration camp
was where this boy was thrown

Then beaten like an animal
till he had nothing left
yes I can just imagine
how they tortured him to death

They claimed he wasn’t German
he fought more like a Jew
it makes my blood red hot with rage
to think what he went through

my heart breaks for his family
who lost their precious boy
his trophy was returned to them
but there was little joy
