From the collection of poems “Someone will arrange it" from Jiří Kačur:
We stand here naked
We stand here naked with empty hands
Some with beautiful legs,
Others with crooked legs
Hammer of Fate
Full of fear and interest
The inexorable necessity of the rule:
"Every necessity has its own rules."
We stand here: like pillars of salt
Waiting for what?
When fate strikes?
When death its beloved scythe swings?
When it’ll thunder?
