SONG OF SORROW (CRAZY STANZAS)

It was a song she sung

One she sung that so stung

And freed blood that turned dung

Manuring pain which bitterness sprung

Oh I curse her tongue

II

I sought for the strong

But clung on straw which was not strong

And water longed but fire belonged

I swept but wept and kept the swept

Which the chaos did leave

III

She claimed an ancestor did call

For our chaos to turn into a ball

Thrown into a wall and make us dull

For a traveller did make one fall

One of our blood who stood so tall

Composing our song which stung

And had a wire which kept us in

Within the cycle of pain in matrimony
