Nazi Ecstacy



Hitler, Hitler

What have you done?

Thinking you can rule

Using ammunition and gun


You were so consumed

With might and power

With your explosive behaviour

You wanted to tower


Above nations

Around the world

With destruction

They were hurled


Destroying lands

And human life

As you continued

With war and strife


You seemed to forget

The Most High

This is a force

You could not get by


This led to disaster

You could not defeat

It knocked you over

Off your feet


You lost the war

And your dictatorship

Because the Creator

You forgot to worship


Was it really worth it

Seeking absolute control?

But in the process

Losing your soul


You have become

A sad memory

You were actually just

Your own worst enemy


There’s only one Ruler

We must accept

This is the healthiest

And best precept
