And You! Priests, Archbishops criminal curates of the people hysterical crows of the colony bathing the lord's sword on the blood of sheep you yourselves drink the tears of a mutilated christ you go on diverting the coins of the craftsman you drink to man overshadowing him damning him forever you abandon him in the middle of the street shattered, with a stone of terror sunken in his soul on the day of judgement you will be called into account and that day is everyday every hour in these lands which you martyrize relentlessly exploiting them wasting them slowly until they ulcerate may you be damned by nature you have betrayed the native land a million times shrouded inheritances in the smoke of insult and still with the foaming mouth of the prophet you smile and cry out to the sky and the bankers never any mercy for you never any mercy for you assassins of the light amputators of pity masqueraders of fraud manufacturers of sin there won't be any mercy for you

From the chimneys of the arms factories rises smoke those who would take the sustenance from the table teach contentment those who eat their fill speak to the hungry of wonderful times to come those for whom the contribution is destined demand sacrifice their words - public monuments demented speech woven with reason and the dark sound made when dying is erased by the rising shouts of victory those who lead man into this abyss speak of the need for strong leaders ruling's to difficult for ordinary men when the leaders speak of peace everyone knows that war is coming when the leaders curse war, hunger, death mobilization orders have already been written out and the dark sound made when dying is erased by the rising shouts of victory the same leaders repeat; peace and war are of different substance but their peace and their war are like wind and like storm war grows from peace like son from his mother he bears the same distorted features when they speak of peace know that war is coming when they curse war, hunger, death they are heading into this abyss eagles of war gluttonous vultures their war kills whatever their peace has left over when it comes to marching many do not know that their enemy is marching at their head the voice that gives them the orders is the enemy`s voice and the man who speaks of the enemy is the enemy himself

I shall die, but that is all I shall do for Death I hear him leading his horse out of the stall I hear the clatter on the barn floor he is in haste he has business in the north, east, south and west many calls this morning but I will not hold the bridle while he cinches on the girth he may mount by himself I will not give him a leg up though he flick my shoulders with his whip I will not tell him which way the fox ran with his hoof on my breast I will not tell him where the boy hides in the swamp I shall die, but that is all I shall do for Death I am not on his payroll I will not tell him the whereabouts of comrades nor of enemies either the siren wail, and the screaming houses brought to their knees in the dust towers crack, facades spat out, and the hurricanes drone of the engines contempt - drained blood war wasted peoples historical decadence colonial disaster abysses of debt that become heritage we hawk a philanthropy that kills to kill all pain War is no longer declared, only continued The monstrous has become everyday the `hero` stays away from battle there is no front yes, we shall die and that is not all we shall do for death We hear him leading his horse out of the stall we hear the clatter on the barn floor he is in haste he has business in the north, east, south and west and we may not hold the bridle but he will mount by himself we do naught to stop him and instead turn away.
