For The Want Of Art

Hitler nailed upon a swastika cross

Arian martyr, mistaken messiah

Vainglorious zealot, egomaniac

Delusional occultist and mad man

Set upon a chaotic, genocidal path

When his youthful, artistic dreams

Were quashed instead of nurtured

By narrow-minded, judgmental authority

That fatefully deemed him not worthy

To follow his muse, to pursue beauty

So, rejected and hurt, he turned away

To find another, terrible way to go

And the whole world paid the price

    Hmmm, I never thought of Hitler as a frustrated, insane artist. But there you go.
