I’m falling asleep
With my brain
Innoculated with thoughts
Of Edith Stein
It rythms with beer stein
I drank beer in Deutschland
Munich, Stuttgart and Ludwigsburg
Where Napoleon rested
On his way to Russia
It didn’t work out for him
But Edith, poor loving soul,
To be grabbed by the devil himself
As was the Mother of ten
In Ireland, The Missing
A pearl gleaming in the night
We remember, we are singing
We remember the disgusting behavior
Of murderers possessed by
The Devil himself
How many have to disappear
So we remember Edith
And the many mothers
Who die in the arms of terror?
They hide, don’t tell
We have to make our evil go away
Into the next world
Or we will kill you
The truth reveals who they are
Murderers have no regret
