Brecht says
they had it worse
back then and there though
we’ve got our own
raging contagion our own
seething mad brute
at the top at the bottom
gleefully squeezing
spreading the worst
humanity can excrete
like rancid manna.

They only had
bitter evil
back there and then so
you see it
could get worse
again again though not
that too but
let’s speak now of
bitter evil.
