What do I know of cultured ways, the gilt, the craft and the lie?I, who was born in a naked land and bred in the open sky.The subtle tongue, the sophist guile, they fail when the broadswords sing;Rush in and die, dogs—I was a man before I was a king. - Robert E. Howard

How can I wear the harness of toilAnd sweat at the daily round,While in my soul foreverThe drums of Pictdom sound? - Robert E. Howard
