Poetry Interlude: The Solution, by Bertolt Brecht

16 May

15.4.1967 East Berlin’s Karl-Marx-Allee (previously Stalinallee, and Große Frankfurter Straße before)


 
After the uprising of the 17th of 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?

    Nice to know that I am not the only person who quotes this.
