    The wand’ring shade by his magnetick pow’r,

    The question of the controverted houre;

    I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had to hailbomb, for twelve hours, and when it was all over I walked up.... We didn’t find one of ‘em, not one stinking dink
    body. That smell, you know, that gasoline smell. The whole hill. It smelled like ... victory.
