"Those corpses lay out on the shining sands/ In the morning gleam as the tide went down,/ And the women are weeping and wringing their hands/ For those who will never come back to the town./ For men must work and women must weep,/ And the sooner it's over the sooner to sleep,/ And goodbye to the bar and its moaning." [P. 10.]
