I remember the quarrel over experience
your tiger machinery
my pleasure for suffering
what stone to sit down on?
what bread to eat?
when I go out to look for the sun
everyone smiles
oh stone, frustration of feet
let us bring the sun closer
crystals passed from animals.
Quibbles over quarters, then executes.
But first hang me to be sure, then draw and quarter me; Oh, please!
