Once, long ago, I was training a slavewho endeavored most stubbornly Not to behave,So I cut off a finger or twowith a knifeAnd threatened to slaughterhis child and his wife.Then I stripped him down nakedand strapped to a horse,I dragged him through milesof bramble and gorse.Poured salt in his woundsand rolled him in rubble,That was the last timehe gave any trouble.

Once, long ago, I was training a slave
who endeavored most stubbornly 
Not to behave,
So I cut off a finger or two
with a knife
And threatened to slaughter
his child and his wife.
Then I stripped him down naked
and strapped to a horse,
I dragged him through miles
of bramble and gorse.
Poured salt in his wounds
and rolled him in rubble,
That was the last time
he gave any trouble.
