Deos Et Ipsi Observabant Eum


Deos Et Ipsi Observabant Eum

(The Gods Were Watching It)


While with tragic tears you were stacked,
And the earth, pitch black and dark,
Conquered your strength, dreams destitute.
Made you a whore.
Deos et ipsi observabant eum.



When to the dark gray beasts' fancies,
Struck you a rod in and out,
For that certain quiver in their loins.
You were helpless, and
Deos et ipsi observabant eum.



While by incense traders gluttoned,
In gold and silver the blossom traded,
Mere to be shredded into bits,
Neither of a wreath, nor of some devotion...
Deos et ipsi observabant eum.



And when the lassies, who to feed,
Brought along a sack of gold for a measure of wheat,
Among the fattened bulls and bears,
And when the butterfly broke her wings,
Deos et ipsi observabant eum.



With the gusty wind, the heaven trembled,
Some souls lamenting her saddened fate suicide,
No matter if some ewe cry for help aloud,
When beastly brutes six devour her,
Deos et ipsi observabant eum.



Deos et ipsi observabant eum,
The Gods were watching it they say,
No matter how, where, and what you are,
The Gods will always watch.
The Gods can't do anything else.
