give
me
a small country
with
few
people
though
they
have
machines,
they don't
use them
they fear
death
and
rarely
travel
very far.
boats,
carts,
arms
they have,
but not
on display
they
communicate
with
knots
on
a string
they're
content
with
their food,
their clothes,
their homes
though
there's
another
country
so close
they
can
see it,
and
cocks
can be
heard
crowing
and
dogs
barking
there's
no
traffic--
and
for their whole lives
the two people
never

meet.
