The Hypocrite’s Dance

Rich men praise a mighty king
Who in peace does justice bring
But when chance against him turns
Will find out he never learns

Fascists in the countryside
Armies with their lawless files
They think men can do no wrong
Where no woman sings her song

Stage lights cheat the actors’ game
Truthfulness they will not tame
Curtains hid their guilty lives
Now the public sees their lies

Poets sing of better times
Daily they compose their rhymes
Lines that you will never doubt
Myths they one day will wear out

Time for unrest this is not
Stop your shouting cease your plots
Patients from their final rest
Pay us back with interest!

Have you taken your pink pill?
Prey to God you won’t fall ill
While the poor must stock your shelves
Stay inside and save yourselves
