"...and whatever happens, our grandchildren can sort it out."

..."Theres nothing to be done if A has a cushier time of it than B, and whatever happens, our grandchildren can sort it out". Ah, asleep already? A pleasant waking then, Friend!

The current is already live in the wire kraal, and the sentries have been posted."

No, don't sleep while the arrangers of the world are busy! Be suspicious of the power they claim

to have to acquire on your behalf! Stay awake to be sure that your hearts are not empty, when others calculate on the emptiness of your hearts! Do what is unhelpful, sing songs from out of your mouths that go against expectation! Be ornery, be as sand, not oil in the thirsty machinery of the world!

from Dreams, Gunter Eich
