Taking It Back

Form: Goethe Stanza

Their faces believed the deceit

Of faith lost in political lies
Yet their hearts will be crushed by defeat

When we refuse to answer their cries

The seeds of hate they cast

In futile words of the old timers’ plan
The search for truth is now long past

As children are sacrificed by the party man

Stand tall my children, the nation must die

Like the old in wreaths of false hope
Like religion they only ever stand by

While the rest of us just cope
