After a War
by Jan Oscar Hansen
Bookmark and Share
 
1945 peace was delcared, jubilant people danced
in streets; but there had to be revenge, women
who had slept with the enemy, the easy targets,
were rounded up, dragged to the police yard.
Heads were shorn, bald women what a strange
sight….tears and laughter. I knew one of them
she lived in a basement flat near us, she used to
give me soft slices of bread with strawberry jam.
I was told not to speak to her, this fallen hussy;
and that was ok, she was now poor as us, had
nothing to give, but her shame and endless tears.
