"Hurt me not and I won't hurt you!" Blind gardener spoke from bed of flowers, conversing minutes into hours with ants and hornets, wasps and flies Voiced no cries from wounded flesh. "Hurt me not and I won't kill you!" Blind farmer spoke in thought and deed, with no great speed but steady rhythm stealthy with him moved the rodents through the stalls, on to the fields spreading fodder, gathering yields. Young birds hop ahead and see the hunter in his bed bestretch himself then settle back to drowse at peace within the aura strange and fresh. "No need to kill me, nor I you!" Blind farmer senses menace near the rasp of morbid, savage fear bitter venom on the wind with only denim covering leg. The lovely crafted lethal boot might send the viper to the egg but should the farmer once mistake the copperhead for harmless snake, one bite will serve to right the err. "Peace," sighs farmer pointing where the viper's tongue is flicking, clicking Farmer kicks a clod and bangs his stick dissuading dripping fangs "We'll both progress from bad to worst for if you try to deal death, I must have to still you first!"
