If they were given permission by the Angel of History
to be confounded by their brutality
rather than be reassured by the state
so simply of their power
then the light might shine
brighter across the strath of the World
instead of the boot & the baton
gaining purchase by the hour
as the new morality
but they do not seek any permission
or care how they are seen
they have already lost & they lose much more
falling from the manner to the matter in hate
they put their red caps on
