A perfect hell --
Are the men willing to march? --

Tock-tock-tock --
The water cabbages are moving --
My legs are but useless things --
Life so uncertain here --
A courageous lady --
Supreme and absolute power --
My lady and I shall proceed alone --
Not a gentleman in the whole of Africa --

That disgraceful outrage --
You promised you would never return without me --
How can I live? --
