Let them (A)flow away like water that runs off;
When he [a](B)aims his arrows, let them be as [b]headless shafts.

Like the (C)miscarriages of a woman which never see the sun.
Before your (D)pots can feel the fire of thorns
He will (E)sweep them away with a whirlwind, the [d]green and the burning alike.
