Do you see girls in the distance?
Sent to the province of S.
Weighed down with fear and satchels
Coal tokens under duress

The world of daughters is closed to them
And, shivering, we've worn out that seam
It was a novel ruse

Valentina, lost to commerce
Just as our Alyosha to blades
I had dreamed I'd see her happy
Walk in her great gala parade

The world of sentiment fell on the day
We bargained our children for warmth
In a novel ruse

The words of emmisaries jumbled our thoughts
And, shivering, we plumped for the heat

It was a novel ruse on our part
If we'd known just where it leads
To a bed of broken hearts
To a rumbling on the fields
Novel ruse, and it felt
Bloody awful to conveive
Should I hang from a belt?
Should I take my cue and leave?
