Short were the days of imagination, and precocious the dreams of the modern youth

Rushed along by dark temptations, ruining the floors of old foundations

 

So much of little which has been said all comes down to the world is dead

Is rotting in the devil’s bed, and poisoning the scholar’s head

 

Long has innocence been denied, as sin to all has been prescribed

 

In wickedness their hearts do lie; torn from the tit the babes do cry

 

Again, so much of little said pays tribute to the world is dead

Corroding in the devil’s bed, polluting all the scholar’s head

 

Lost is their faith and fidelity, forsworn all the rules of morality

 

Madness is spread out so far and wide, in every child its roots now abide

 

Indeed, so much and little said, gives credence to the world is dead

 

Is buried in the devil’s bed, and has destroyed the scholar’s head
