For love,
They make him low
And look grey in pillows.

By smoke
They send down force,
As yam but a great curse.

Yam from
Shall drag all kindred home.

Whence you are home
Is lost, in shrine of ghost.

But why
Make him a fool
When the end is so awful.

Smokes on the yam
Draging all kindred’s arm.

Them alive but
Dead in the shrine of ghost.
