Magda Goebbels beautiful was she
And surrounded by admirers
Though attention for children was
Most of hers was Hitler’s
Magda, blonde, vivacious, vain
But her powers were on the wane
In Berlin’s bunker cowered they
Russians bombing ever nearer
Planned killing six children after tea
When no-one else could hear her
Magda, silent, ruthless as can be
Cyanide pills, slipped them together
Kicked, startled, dead all her group
Beautiful, innocent, lovely children!
To Fanaticism’s depths did Magda stoop
Follow ye not obsessed and evil women!
