''Though obediance is strong, Curiosity's stronger--We waited for long, Till we couldn't wait longer. It's imprudent, we know; But without your society Existence was slow, And we wanted variety. So here we are, at the risk of our lives--And we've brought your wives--And to that end, we've crossed the main, And we don't, don't intend to return again.''
