Madam, for what reason, this atrocity ?

Madam, for what rea­son, this atro­ci­ty ?

 

Madam, for what rea­son, this atro­ci­ty ?
These cap­tives, what they need, enchai­ned in lead,
are names, names recor­ded in tran­qui­li­ty,

more of your bene­volent restraint, ins­tead
of your exas­pe­ra­tion, of your spite,
who serve to you your eve­ning wine and bread.

From above, I hear cries of those without delight,
of souls without hope, ima­gi­na­tion –
a clean spi­rit, qui­ck­ly dying. Dead from fright ?

One who in life was black, now faded phan­tom white.
