[underlined] Poem by Yge Foppema [/underlined]

Pilots who came to us while waging the bloodiest war that ever yet befel [sic] mankind, and that for five years had been raging around and o’er us, making life hell.
Look how we wave at you now that all is well.
Look how we raise our children on our shoulders, and they will tell their children’s children when they’re old and wise,
How man, like God, dropped Manna from the skies.

From the book, ‘The Hunger Winter’ by Henri Van Der Zee.
