THE BAR-TTLE

The Bar-ttle indeed is ahead of us,
Like cattle, a head of course,
And we're set to it devour
I can hear the applause, the devoirs
The maidens with cymbals singing for us,
'Saul has maimed thousands,
But David has slain ten thousands'
Then like David, we'll pen psalms,
Lines vivid like those on our palms,

[Hata Bildir]
