The serpent's tail wrapped all around my body as i fight to breathe
Making all these decisions, contemplating, wondering where they'll all lead

Friend, thou beholdest the lightning? Who has the charge of it,
To decree which rock-ridge shall receive, shall be chosen for targe of it?
Which crown among palms shall go down, by the thunderbolt broken;
While the floods drown the sere wadis where no bud is token?

Sweet-scented stuff when the breeze drew across it.

The feeling is calling to you in every way,

Where the dry black bread and the sugarless tea

From bands of greedy heirs be free;
For these besiege the latest breath
Of fortune's favoured sons, not me.

If existence was possible even after going six feet underground
