murder poem about Magda Goebbels: propaganda war

Propaganda War

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!


Patrick Mackeown, July 2006
