'War. War turn war. Slip turn beyond. Seek Sex. Bastards. Past Grief. Past wants him. Past wants strife. Another death. Another love. Another duty. Another irony. Another one, like a fool. Sick and sullen. Eternity. Equality. Idle. Conceit. Views. Natural pleasure. O will full. O deceit full. O spite full. Quarrel no more. I am. Prepare for battle. Soldier. Nights. Of his bones. O. Peace or War. Who shall stand. On that day.'
