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
people
from smashing its own tools and
crushing its own bread-basket underfoot
we wish to bring back
God.



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
misery
and His voice may resound in the stockyards, 



(to the BLACK STRAW HATS)
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.
