It seems that I have smashed my face in vain - For all stay mute, thatís all, they are conforming. Alone I yell, still so much strength remains, Although I do not work out in the morning. Yes, tons of weight I easily could have carried! But whatís the merit in my long commute? My country now is like a dump truck trailer: A chauffeur drives, he does not give a hoot.
