Bertolt Brecht

 

Against seduction

(poem)

 

 

1

 

 

Don’t you let be seduced!

There is no return.

Dawn is at gates,

there is a night wind now:

won’t come another morning.

 

 

2

 

 

Don’t you let be fooled

with that life is short.

Drink it by big gulps

because it won’t be enough to you

when you must loose it.

 

 

3

 

 

Don’t let them get your hopes up!

today is all there is

Let pious people suffer!

Life’s all earth has to offer

there’s no life after this.

 

 

4

 

 

Don.t let them lure you into

exhaustion and duress!

Why all the trepidation?

you die like all creation

and after: nothingness.
