Danse Macabre | Laszlo Aranyi 

The need for order has gone crazy.
The deceptive balance between
the bottom and the top.
What has been sustained before is now hanging.
Hanging by a ghostly, bitter mist syrup.
The one-handed “master of final things around here”
is playing the violin.
What shall our pike pal conjure from
the hovels of our malaise?
Our Sleeping Beauty dreams are on the respirator in deep sleep.
We fucked up these thirty years. (Just like the previous
three hundred
The same will happen with the coming years.
(Fiscal order, when it breaks away from
the philosophical sense of justice degenerates into the
lawlessness of criminals…)
This nation is on the brink of extinction since the beginning.
This is your cradle, your grave.
It obstructs, then inearths…
Doomed man, you decide who will be your cutthroat!
And the new ones (or the old that remain) riding in pants
slipped below the knee,
will cheerfully smack at the clamped pricks
of the riffraff and the boor …
