A sweet compromise takes hold and steady,
fasten me up for the latest ration
just so I can feel like what it is to suffer!
Get me into the middle of a riot
and trample me with feet,
that's the best way to make friends
with the worms underground,
press my face into the mud
so that I may kiss the small ones.
For it is them who do all the hardest work
on this planet
so we can stand erect
