Inscriptions

1. There was a time, in the years of NEP Quisling, standing on Il'inka Street, Shouted, quite ferociously: “Franks! Lira! Swedish krones! Switchblades!” For currency trading in our country He was expelled with a kick in the rear. 2. Over a bottle of beer, or maybe Riesling, In a restaurant somewhere Hitler met Quisling. Hitler was seeking any old way To find an executioner to torment Norway. Quisling volunteered: “I’m a Judas, Who else do you want for this?!...” 3. And Hitler sent him off to Norway To head the Fascist bandit government! The Germans oppress the Norwegian people, Humiliating and robbing them freely. And Quisling takes for himself A healthy portion of the proceeds! 4. Here is a gallery, full of various trash, With a proper place For every traitor: Quisling, Laval, Doriot: They are all risen from the same dough!
