He wears them every day
Stained with mud, blood and tears
Not a word he's allowed to say
Shunned by every one of his peers

Bruno is his best friend
They play with each other all day
The fences they can not bend
They know the consequences
But its a price they're willing to pay

They'll be friends till the end of time
Secrets kept from the world they share
This part of their life is prime
Even though they are gone, their families will always care

The author's comments:
I need to write a poem about "The boy in the striped pajamas" for my literacy teacher. The two main characters are Bruno and Schmuel. Schmuel is the boy in the striped pajamas. This happened during the Holocaust in the work/ death camps.

This is amazing. "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas" is a really good book, and I think you coverd it perfectly!
