Pàgina 175 - This is the last Our feet shall touch together We thought the tune Obeyed us to the soul But the drums are newly shaped And stiff arms strain On stubborn crooks, so Delve with the left foot For ill-luck; with the left Again for ill-luck; once more With the left alone, for disaster Is the only certainty we know.
