Well built and huge as rock is man
Body fortified with strength
Brain with inventions
Born to explore the world
Beasts his wits subdue

Chest so broad and arms so strong
Legs so swift and eyes’re as eagle’s
As huge as rock as man is built
His hope, his joy, his destiny’re controlled
By the smallest flap on his rocky shape

His tongue:
His joy; his woe; his life; his death
He untames his tongue – he destroys himself
If you control your tongue
You control your life.
