"The Subhuman" as written by and Peter Thomas Steele....
Born of snow and ice
On a windswept cycloscape
As the son of modern science
The Freon neonate
Cross the frozen tundra
Each step a country mile
Frigid vapor, glacial breath
A liquid oxygen smile

Take my hand and travel north
The weather, there is cool
Heliocaustic rays of sunlight
Blind the eyes of this fool
Jack frost foaming from the mouth
Attacking exposed flesh
Becomes my jelled partner
At light where art thou best

Slick blue skin reflects the stars
The temperature below zero
Come to me an arctic hero!
Blizzards taking life give death
Flaccid northern drift
Winter tempests, bring forth the cold
Frigid apocalypse

Would you welcome the subhuman
A warm welcome for the subhuman

The ice man cometh
She walks alone
On a cold winter's night
As I come up from behind
My icicle phallus penetrates deeply
So cold it will cauterize
Stalactited blood
Drips from my pores
Her skin between my teeth
Relieved of her life
A warm heart still beating
Becomes a delicious treat

I possess the strength
Of one hundred thousand glaciers
Triumphantly I stride far beyond
The broken laws of nature
Every storm extends my life
A century or longer
That which does not destroy me
Only makes me stronger
Cryanthropic submarine
My sanguineous appetite

Would you welcome the subhuman
A warm welcome for the subhuman
Would you welcome the subhuman
A warm welcome for the subhuman

    General CommentAlthough usually considered to have been coined by the Nazis themselves, the term "under man" in the above mentioned sense was actually first used by American author Lothrop Stoddard in the title of his 1922 pamphlet The Revolt Against Civilization: The Menace of the Under Man. It was later adopted by the Nazis from that book's German version Der Kulturumsturz: Die Drohung des Untermenschen (1925).[1] The German word "Untermensch" itself had been used earlier (not in a racial sense), e.g. in a 1899 novel by Theodor Fontane. Since most writers who employ the term do not address the question of when and how the word entered the German language (and therefore do not seem to be aware of Stoddard's original term "under man"), "Untermensch" is usually back-translated into English as "sub-human." A leading Nazi attributing the concept of the East-European "under man" to Stoddard is Alfred Rosenberg who, referring to Russian communists, wrote in his Der Mythus des 20. Jahrhunderts (1930) that "this is the kind of human being that Lothrop Stoddard has called the 'under man.'" ["...den Lothrop Stoddard als 'Untermenschen' bezeichnete."][2] Quoting Stoddard: "The Under-Man -- the man who measures under the standards of capacity and adaptability imposed by the social order in which he lives.
