hungry for nothing but peace

no wonder I'm starved in stamina

and no wonder people think I'm 'lunatick...

and sore vexed'

I am awake and dreading death

in the throes of someone's nightmare or

at the hands of the accustomed mob

whose need for peace is laid aside

to exercise the ignored substrata

our lusts cannot subsume

peace quite off the table

and I get the nothing that is peace
