To all my friends who have felt me in anguish when this earthen back breaks between the crack of two blades. To all my friends who have held me in rage when fire tears through swallows behind tight grins.

And he is your board and your fireside. For you come to him with your hunger, and you seek him for peace.
No, not as there is a time to talk. I thrust my hoe in the mellow ground, Blade-end up and five feet tall, And plod: I go up to the stone wall For a friendly visit. Crush us!
