Radnóti Miklós

Fragment (English)

I lived upon this earth in such an age
when man was so debased he sought to murderfor pleasure,
not just to comply with orders,
his faith in falsehoods drove him to corruption,
his life was ruled by raving self-deceptions.
I lived upon this earth in such an age
that idolized the sly police informers,
whose heroes were the killers, spies, the thieves – and the few who held their peaceor only failed to cheer were loathed like victims of the plague.
I lived upon this earth in such an age
when those who risked protest
were wise to hide and gnaw their fists in self-consuming shame
–the crazed folk grinned about their terrifying doomed future,
wild and drunk on blood and mire.
I lived upon this earth in such an age
when the mother of an infant was a curse,
when pregnant women were glad to abort,
the living envied the corpses in the graveswhile on the table foamed their poisoned cup.
I lived upon this earth in such an age
when even the poet fell silent and waited in hope for an ancient,
terrible voice to rise again –
for no-one could utter a fitting curse of such horror
but the scholar of dreadful words, Isaiah the prophet.
