1942: Stjepan Filipovic

He was not unusual
Just one of many
Freedom fighters
Defending his land
Who was captured
By an invader
Who had demanded
Complete obedience
To their occupation
Wearing a crooked cross
Upon their shoulders
Thinking nothing
Of complete extermination
Brutal domination
Of what and who
They considered to be
The lesser man
And used every method
Including murder
To defeat the people
This one who resisted
Took his death
By hanging
As an opportunity
To defy the invader
Shouting with pride
Death to Fascism
Freedom to the People
