The prelude is over, and Madame Chauchat, for it is she, introduces herself melodiously with a poem by Alexander Blok
clavdia
-. -, , . , ! , -! , - ! Millions are you ­ and hosts, yea hosts, are we. And we shall fight if war you want, take heed. Yes, we are Scythians ­ leaves of the Asian tree, Our slanted eyes are bright aglow with greed.
130 LI B RE T TO
, , , , , ! Eastwards you cast your eyes for many hundred years, Greedy for our precious stones and ore, And longing for the time when with a leer You'd yell an order and the guns would roar!

Yet how will ever you perceive,

That, as we love, as lovingly we yearn!
Our love is neither comfort nor relief,
But like a fire will destroy and burn

We love the flavor and the smell of meat,

The slaughterhouses' pungent reek.
Why blame us then if in the heat
Of our embrace your bones begin to creak.
Hans is impressed by the poetry
