THE VERY LAST
The fight is hard and pitiless
The fight is epic, as they say.
I fell. Another takes my place -
Why single out a name?
After the firing squad - the worms.
Thus does the single logic go.
But in the storm we'll be with you,
My people, for we loved you so.2 PM, 23 July 1942
(Translated by P. Tempest - 1954)
