Now again it's your job, since
you've taken the robe, which
you had at the start, again
to rejuvenate yourself,
and cast an awful glance,
mindful of the god,
to whom you liken yourself.
But if you're caught babbling
or emit some cowardly sound,
you'll have to pick up
the baggage again.

Not bad advice, my friends,
And I just happened to think
this myself.
Since if there's anything good,
he'll try to take this back from me
I know full well.
But nonetheless I'll show
myself manly of heart
and spicy of look.
I think I'll need to, since I hear
just now a knock on the door.
