The Genius ("For you I will be a ghetto Jew ..") from "The Spice-Box of Earth"

For you 
I will be a ghetto jew 
and dance 
and put white stockings 
on my twisted limbs 
and poison wells 
across the town 

For you 
I will be an apostate jew 
and tell the Spanish priest 
of the blood vow 
in the Talmud 
and where the bones 
of the child are hid 

For you 
I will be a banker jew 
and bring to ruin 
a proud old hunting king 
and end his line 

For you 
I will be a Broadway jew 
and cry in theatres 
for my mother 
and sell bargain goods 
beneath the counter 

For you 
I will be a doctor jew 
and search 
in all the garbage cans for foreskins 
to sew back again 

For you 
I will be a Dachau jew 
and lie down in lime 
with twisted limbs 
and bloated pain 
no mind can understand
