The fierce but unfair battle between physical might and the intellect with the vain hope that the latter will come out victorious.

When all of you go riot                                                                                                                                             With bayonet, rifle and on chariot,                                                                                                                           Seeking, at the same time, for attention,                                                                                                                You put me in no little tension.                                                                                                                                My confidence in the test tube                                                                                                                                 And the microscope’s goggle looking so crude,                                                                                                       Provide the thin defence line,                                                                                                                                  Like a brood of swines on wine                                                                                                                               Against your ghastly legion.                                                                                                                                    Even the elementals that that saw me blossom                                                                                                     Now turn to me their rear region:                                                                                                                            They pull back when I seek their bosom.
