Mengele's Hairball

Mengele's Hairball

I am glad to learn
from Tuesday's Guardian
that Mengele suffered
"intense abdominal pain"
in the last years
of his long life;

glad, that his gut was clotted
with a hairball formed
from the anxious chewing
of his white moustache,
as he fretted down his days
in lonely, penurious,
unrepentant exile.

May all those who traffic
in agony and violence
end so.
