ILAM

Lament with raft rattle. The rattle has seeds inside a hollow raft of stout grass stalks.
"They put poison in my beer and that is why I have nochild. I am very worried about the guitar. I do not like to meet anyone. I went to my doctor to make myself effective to get a child. I asked my uncle if he had seen the way I dance. Did the old people kill a man on account of his dancing - or does that only happen to me?"
