Stephen Crane: Black Riders XIX

StephenCrane1899

A god in wrath
Was beating a man;
He cuffed him loudly
With thunderous blows
That rang and rolled over the earth.
All the people came running.
The man screamed and struggled,
And bit madly at the feet of the god.
The people cried,
“Ah, what a wicked man!”
And–
“Ah, what a redoubtable god!”
