Just Pity No More - Poem by Alexandra Motschmann

You went upon the streets
and killed your brothers and sisters
to what you think it leads
this lie in the church registers.

First we felt just incomprehension
then there was hate and fear
the days went by and without exemption
we switched the gear.

Brotherhood, freedom and egality
rose in us again
wrath is of no use to fight insanity
even so we are in pain.

Evolutionwise you are far back behind
that is what we can see
your hearts are closed, your eyes are blind
far away of being free.

Just pity we feel for you
no more

Just compassion we have for you
no more

Our head is bloody but undaunted
and you seem to be haunted.

Poor followers you are all
aiming to the downfall.

We stay with love inside
that's what we decide.
