A Young Hitler is Seen in Vienna, c. 1909

A Young Hitler is Seen in Vienna, c. 1909

That one without even an overcoat,
covered in lice and old laborers’ clothes?

That one who’d be dead if not for the doles,
that charity tramp living off rat scraps?

A homeless louse like that will what,
be the murder of me, and millions?

And I’ll work towards him and love him,
and give my grandchildren to his pyre,

so desperate and swept up and sure of him,
that one without even an overcoat?
