"... and thus the golem speakest:
hath thou not seen my bretheren and suisteren
that are laboring for your gain, all night and all day,
belouw the grounds and in the remnands of your bosom?
hath thou not tried to unburden me from my plight?
oh, tender ones, crumby are thine tinkering,
whilst we are bracing the world with fire and stone!"
(epitome of the old welsh saga "the golem", aprox. 1350 AD)
