Evil's Father


If you wonder “is there evil”
In this world, not the hereafter
Then find out about Adolf Hitler
For he was evil’s Father

How can we comprehend
That this silly failed artist
Would take millions in command
And execute the rest
He drilled down to the serpent core
Of the human mind
And oversaw
Fomenting hatred everywhere
Of his human family he did abhor
And in every group of human stock
There are those who will evil unlock
Who happily accept gun and rank
To submit those they call the lower rank
So Hitler fathered many satans
Not just in Germany but other nations

Never forget that evil lives
Inside the minds of those who give
Themselves to hatred
Removing mercy from their core
Destroying families ever more

Do not forget the cries of the Jews
The gyspsies, slaves, his critics too
The soldiers who in battle fell
To rid the world of human evil.
