The Key

Oh, why do you always say “Nein”?
Faithfully always saying “Nein”?
One wonders whether you’ve won.
Oh, “take it down” you say too.

“Nein” here and there and all around.
Heaven knows the reason for
every incomprehensible decree.
Strive for purity with such aplomb.

Doubtlessly pursue all who wait.
For surely you are the only one
I’ve seen with the carrots and the sticks.
See the vermin struggle to survive.

Fix all holes and demand your fee.
Live pages require the sticks.
Bait the traps for those you hate.
See now how you become the hero!
