In a coming storm, there is little in the way of shelter,
In an angry sea, there is little to hold on to,
In the middle of an accident, nearly all will pelter
On a raging horse, do you know what to do?
The daunting expanse of unconquered land wants to make a fool out of you.
Do we then come together to see one another through?
Wrap me inside the carpet and roll me near the fire for I am cold,
The task requires that I shun warm comfort in favour of the cold unknown,
My bones rattle incessantly at the thought,
Whence hideth ye, my religious swathe?
It is a new cup that shakes in my hand in a froth
I am beset in my own skin, utterly fraught.
Laugh at the vicissitudes of life!
Muse at how the ingeniouses are rife
I know that you inveigh against it every once in a while,
With great gusto and all of it in a pile.
Woe betide she who looks at it with stars in her eyes
The floor is not solid and the walls are not thick, walk as if everyone lies.
