the Ogre does what ogres can

Стихотворение Одена, написанное в 1968 году, после ввода войск в Чехословакию

The Ogre does what ogres can,
Deeds quite impossible for Man,
But one prize is beyond his reach:
The Ogre cannot master speech.

About a subjugated plain,
Among its desperate and slain,
The Ogre stalks with hands on hips,
While drivel gushes from his lips.
