Back Next 400 Hundred

At last he found the nazi salute
it was tucked away
into some esoteric corner
where for 400 hundred dollars
(which dear daddy gave him)
his Gestapo life was torn away
and he came out compassionate
yet not before
the tune of love
was drummed in
so that
he could whistle
and recruit.
