BURMA RAIL­ROAD

Our Canada - - Collectors - by Mar­lies Liket ( loosely trans­lated from Dutch to English)

Each nail cost a life, Each screw was paid for in blood, People have given them­selves And paid for years.

Each stone caused aches and pains And each step, the light of life. People crawled around like ants, And de­spair and agony shaped their faces.

Each day there was suf­fer­ing. And each night there was death. People cried out for peace But the earth was coloured red.
