My Four Commandments

MY FOUR COMMANDMENTS Do not take me away from the battle field Else you quench my flame in the face of war Because its when the river rushes in anger over a precipice That we behold the miracles of the waterfall. Do not rebuff me of my chances and opportunities Else you become a clog in the wheel of progress Because the path which the Buffalo clears to the stream Same will also be tramped by the smart Antelope. Do not deny me of my daily night sleep Else you amputate my exceptional inestimable dreams Because it is until you kill the dream you can't kill the man. Do not backstab me or cast a slur on my person Else you kill a fellow man with the dagger of the mouth Because when a Jaguar's engine roars with fury What curses shall one send after it to counter its speed?
