A pragmatic gentleman’s advice

Let us hide in the bunkers
The long winter has begun,
Let us learn to say yes
In many languages.
 
Let us store our literature and philosophy
And take out the catalogues,
Time for redemption is not now
Let us order some pizza.
 
For too long we remained silent
Enjoying the joyrides,
Now let the others slug it out
And kill each other on TV.
 
Our blood has turned cold, our muscles are weak
(Where is the remote?)
Do not stress yourself
Over wars lost long ago.
 
The times will change once more,
It always does,
Till then do not worry so
About the massacre at the square.
 
Do not read stories of heroes to the children,
They get wrong ideas,
Let us spend the winter reading comics
In the candle light.
