about

From a poem by the Polish Yiddish poet Mordechai Gebirtig "A Tog Fun Nekome," written while he was interned by the Nazi's in 1940. He and his wife were gunned down randomly during the clearing of the Krakow Ghetto in 1942.

Though is starts off sounding like gleeful revenge porn it wraps up as the quintessential Jewish response to terror and oppression.

lyrics

Listen close what I say
They’ll come a time, they’ll be a day
And though it seems so far away
I promise that we’ll make them pay

There’ll be revenge
For the suffering and pain
Revenge
For us who still remain

Oh that day will come along
When we right each every wrong
They’ll be revenge

For the widows, orphans it must suffice
For the millions blood since sacrificed
Our Prophets cry out for us to awake
For retribution so shall we take

Mankind will turn its back on war
I see it clear on a distant shore
It’s coming here like Noah’s dove
A message of kindness, Peace and love

That’s our Revenge…..
