Karsten Rohrbeck: 11/08/16 — Election Day

Each concern, friend, avoid,
each lament you shalt disdain.
Look the lambs on the meadows:
They are happy before the slaughtering.
Don’t you guess how stupid it’d be,
they weren’t it until after it?

¬ poem ›To a pessimist‹ by Heinz Erhardt; self translated from: Es ist schlimm! Dichtes und Undichtes. Büchergilde Gutenberg, 2014, S. 61.
