Anna Bijns On Luther and the Peasants
Anna Bijns wrote:
Luther's evil tongue
Wags at Pope and Emperor alike,
Teaches subjects revolt against their betters,
Spreads defamatory libel of kings and princes,
Flings filth at church lords just the same.
Luther through his actions
Sent two hundred thousand peasants to their graves.
Blood of men and women freely flowed, with
Water and fire curbing his heretic's views.
So, he has butchered both the soul and the body.
--from Anna Bijns: Germanic Sappho by Kristiaan P. G. Aercke
