Butterfly

Yes, That’s the Way Things Are
Miroslav Kosek, Hanus Lowy, Bachner
I.
In Terezin in the so-called park
A queer old granddad sit
Somewhere there in the so-called park.
He wears a beard down to his lap
And on his head, a little cap.
II.
Hard crusts he crumbles in his gums,
He’s only got one single tooth.
My poor old man with working gums,
Instead of soft rolls, lentil soup.
My poor old graybeard!

  1. I really like yours, it's nice and detailed. I like how you drew Hitler faking a good camp. How do you think Hitler came up with the idea of creating a fake camp? I would be scared, if I only had one tooth too! I think Hitler came up with the idea because it's human nature, to have that idea Pop in your head. (And yes, that was a Michael Jackson reference;)

  2. Your butterfly looks nice. I like how you drew the park to go along with the poem. I'm confused is the kid the old man? Because in the poem it says " my old gray beard". I really don't know how to feel towards the poem. I agree with you when you said on your thinglink that the people care about old man.

  3. I like your butterfly. I liked how you colored green to represent grass. Why did you put fake and real? I think because one said is how you think and the other said is how it really is. I'm really shocked the part in the poem that says "my poor old man with working gums, instead of soft rolls." Also, I liked the picture of Terezin you put in one of your annotations.

  5. Your butterfly looks so nice, and your poem is a happy poem because the kids were happy when they were in the playground and I think that your butterfly is not going to die. And it looks nice again.

  6. I like the design of the blog showing the old man sitting on a chair, with a piece of bread in his hands. I like how the poem gives a hint on the old man being the child's grandpa "queer old granddad sit
    Somewhere there in the so-called park."
    He wears a beard down to his lap
    And on his head, a little cap.
    II." The end of the poem says. I think the child lived because he's not giving any hints in the poem about him going to die. My question is if the child just found his long lost gramps? My answer is probably not because it sounds like he knew were his grandpa was but was homeless our just relaxing outside.

  9. Peter, amazing job on your drawings! It was good that you tried and you completed your work. Nice job being responsible bro. I agree with your poem about the tooth being sacred to him but what do you think that tooth represents? I think the playground represents the author's fantasy happiness or what he remembers that brought him happiness.

  10. I like your butterfly. I like how you drew the park to go along with the poem. And other stuff you put to go along with the poem.

  11. Your butterfly shows how the Nazi try to make a fake scene. To make it seem like nothing was happening with the Jews. 'In Terezin in the so-called park.' I think they said this to show how Hitler made the fake ghetto to show to the inspectors so they wouldn't know what was actually going on. How come the Jews let the Nazi make the fake park to help? I think because if not they would have been killed.

  12. Your butterfly is very creative. So did the granddad go to the so called park and tried to imagine a good place out of it. In my opinion I think the granddad did go to the so called park and imagine a good place out of it because he was in a concentration camp so he wanted to make it feel like he wasn't there anymore.

  13. The poem says Terezin is called a 'park' (the so-called park), but shows us an old man, clearly lacking care (he's only got one single tooth), and trying to survive in a insufficient diet (instead of soft rolls, lentil soup). I think the poem is saying that terezin is advertised as being a good, say place to stay. But the reality is different. Good job on the butterfly Peter.
