as he writes a letter on a basic desk,
the last letter to his family
professing adoration for his boys.
Is this the man who ran the trains
leading millions to their deaths?
He did not halt the transports
even when Himmler ordered him to cease
yet does not appear like a monster,
no frothing at the mouth with insane eyes.
Oh, the banality of evil
a phrase synonymous with Eichmann
and soon under an Israeli sky
a balding man will be taken to die.
