Inuit Song

Something was whispered
Of a man and wife
Who could not agree
And what was it all about?
A wife who in rightful anger
Tore her husband's furs,
Took their boat
And rowed away with her son.
Ay-ay, all who listen,
What do you think of him
Who is great in his anger
But faint in strength,
Blubbering helplessly?
He got what he deserved
Though it was he who proudly
Started this quarrel with stupid words.
