Dear Folks: This is a rough translation of a clever poem that appeared in the Munich paper. It is a satire on the fact that all Nazis are rats leaving the sinking ship. Everyone “had” to join, or was “secretly” opposed.

Love, Bob

The Old Song:

KLOT2

What do I have to experience now?

There never was such a thing as the Party!

Also there were no Nazis,

Because nobody was a member.

“People only thought I was,”

“I have only had to superficially join up.”

Tones every one of those wonderful figures, from heaving HERO’S breasts.

What do I have to hear next?

Only what I always thought:

There never was anything so cowardly, as the Nazis without power!

Letter from Munich, 1945 December 26
