Norwegian Bells

Today is the 5th anniversary of the massacre of 77 Norwegians by a Anders Breivik, a neo Nazi.    The dead were mostly young people attending a “leftist” summer youth camp.  All he needed was the hat.

Bells should ring

for our peaceful sister

mauled by the evil

come back from the grave.

Ring bells in Warsaw

for our peaceful sister

revisited by the specter

you know so well.

In Paris, Brussels

Lublin and Krakow

Auschwitz Birkenau

and yes, Berlin

be aware the evil lurks among us

We have seen him

staring from old posters

singing to our children

come to life again

Evil with the handsome face.

Ring your bells for our peaceful sister

Throw open wide your holy doors

be aware he has returned

This time ye shall not wait.


About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)

    A nice tribute, Frank. I wrote this about the incident, in 2012.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    ~ Should Lucifer really exist, he would have a handsome face like Anders Breivik.
