The pain of seeing ten cents turned to five!
We clutch with both hands fiercely at the part
We think we feel it in -- the head, the heart.
Is someone cutting us in two alive?

Is someone at us cutting us in half?
We cast a dangerous look from where we lie
Up to the enthroned kings of earth and sky.
They know what's best for them too well to laugh.
