The wholly enlightened earth radiates under the sign of disaster triumphant - Saint Joan of the Stockyards (1932) By Bertolt Brecht

Joan (at the head of a Black Straw Hat shock troop)
In a gloomy time of bloody confusion
ordered disorder
planful wilfulness
dehumanized humanity

when disturbances are unending in our cities:
into such a world, a world like a slaughterhouse

summoned by rumored threats of violence
to stop the brute strength of the dim-sighted
from smashing its own tools and
crushing its own bread-basket underfoot
we wish to bring back

Of little fame these days
almost disreputable
not admitted now
among realities:
but, for the lowest, the one salvation!
Therefore we have decided
to beat the drum for Him
so that He may find a footing in the districts of
and His voice may resound in the stockyards, 

And this enterprise of ours is surely
the last of its kind. A last attempt
to set Him upright in a crumbling world,
and that
by means of the lowest.
