O Germany, Pale Mother! Analysis



Author: poem of Bertolt Brecht Type: poem Views: 5

Let others speak of her shame,

I speak of my own
.



O Germany, pale mother!

How soiled you are

As you sit among the peoples.

You flaunt yourself

Among the besmirched.



The poorest of your sons

Lies struck down.

When his hunger was great.

Your other sons

Raised their hands against him.

This is notorious.



With their hands thus raised,

Raised against their brother,

They march insolently around you

And laugh in your face.

This is well known.



In your house

Lies are roared aloud.

But the truth

Must be silent.

Is it so?



Why do the oppressors praise you everywhere,

The oppressed accuse you?

The plundered

Point to you with their fingers, but

The plunderer praises the system

That was invented in your house!



Whereupon everyone sees you

Hiding the hem of your mantle which is bloody

With the blood

Of your best sons.



Hearing the harangues which echo from your house,

men laugh.

But whoever sees you reaches for a knife

As at the approach of a robber.



O Germany, pale mother!

How have your sons arrayed you

That you sit among the peoples

A thing of scorn and fear!
