Mercy, Lord,

Curricula vitae have never read like this.

And now they put the enemy to music

—so they say—

So they can put the evil thing to flight.

Might they have lingered at Your feet to learn? 

Such be the genius of Your answer

Where history’s crime of crimes most heinous ever

Has turned the universe to right.

It should be called curriculum mortis,

Since this is no vitae, only c. terror;

But Christus still is Victor of the night.
