Suddenly the sawmills achieve electric speed

No forest there, at all

A few scattered trees
Dancing and running— towards the mills

There is a river on the other side of the forest:
It can't shout louder than the crickets

    Aunt has more pity than mother

    If anything occurred on this bank
    The protest on the other side is more

    If anything occurred in the third world
    First world feels severe headaches

    A fool to others, to himself a sage!
