                                   THE END

             Look, my father
             the road is becoming shorter
             there is no sense that will change what is coming!

             That's why I'm preparing a nice note for
             a sudden farewell,
             see, my father!
             Man must make
             for the transition between life and death–
             this is purely necessary wisdom,
             it makes no sense to
             rise early for the morning prayer
