Froth Off



Nein! Nein! Nein!  It's bathtub time
    should cleanse the guilty and sublime

Staring, daring in the raw to
   bubble up within Grimm's law

Praying, staring at the door
   the slightest noise one can't ignore

Eva's razor left behind, no Braun
    to make sure her blades glide

Dirty, flirty boots to clean
   a fuhrer's passion so pristine

Quelling, smelling, edelwiess
    few words said but so concise

Actor, factor, years to come
   secrets washed with bath ring scum

Nein Nein Nein!  It's bathtub time
    be careful with that dirt and grime

Hates, berates each finest hour
    refuse his offer of a shower.............................

I love it! Done like a Hitler march. Refuse the shower!

Definitely reflects the creepiness of someone (anyone!) trying to find cleanliness in Hitler's tub. And these lines:
"Actor, factor, years to come
secrets washed with bath ring scum"

cringe inducers.

So much said here in so few words. Conjurs up a stark picture. So well written.

And so life continued on peacefully for Addi and Eva at the Post war Nazi Antarctic base ....

Excellent use of rhyme and rhythm to convey a brutal image.
