    Hide your pink knees from the gaze of other men.
    You must be pure—go slow with that home-brew

    I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken,
    I saw guns and sharp swords in the hands of young children,
    And it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard,
    It’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall.

    Me not with goodness, but with thundering verse.
