NaPoWriMo Day 12: Index Poem

Following today’s prompt, I wrote this poem using the index from the book, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne.

Bruno makes a discovery

In the new house

What he saw through the window

The overpaid maid with a smug face

Why grandmother stormed out

The fury

Running wildly behind his nanny

The bottle of wine

The shattering sound

Broken glass embedded skull

Something he shouldn’t have done

What happened the next day

Mother had her way

She sent her son to prison

The last chapter of his brutal ways

  1. This is one of my favourite books. The ending of it makes me cry. Please read the book “The Night” by Ellie Weisel. The author received a Nobel Prize for the book.
