TO THE LORD OF DEATH
O the lord of Death,
Where shall you lead me to?
Where did you lead them to?
How deep-sinking is the lake of fire?
How high atop is the promised land?
Ferry me wherever you like
No objection is to your helm.
Let there be sure, the kingdom
Your empire, the abode of Death.
Let human idealism, placing so highly
Bet not a narrow mockery of romance!
