Bertolt Brecht

(10 February 1898 – 14 August 1956 / Augsburg)

The Solution


After the uprising of the 17th June
The Secretary of the Writers Union
Had leaflets distributed in the Stalinallee
Stating that the people
Had forfeited the confidence of the government
And could win it back only
By redoubled efforts. Would it not be easier
In that case for the government
To dissolve the people
And elect another?

    Very prescient, considering the Dems and big business are electing/importing a new people via illegal immigration (Report) Reply

    This proves that Brecht could on occasion be critical of Communism, while remaining a Communist all his latter life.
    All his poems, not unsurprisingly, read far better in the original German. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
