Synopsis
An elegy addressed by a young father to an unborn son; wherein the father exhorts the son to accept the vow of "poverty for life," thus escaping the inevitable betrayals of "the System," which promises people something better. The father tells stories of various social outcasts: a man whose hands were chewed off by millstones, a woman who carries with her the head of her dead lover and a man who only talks to pigeons.
