It should be a small country with a small population
And with ten times as much as they could need.
Let them take death seriously and
Not Travel great distances.

Although they have boats, let them be docked,
Although they have carriages, let them be parked.
Although they have weapons and armaments,
Let them be stowed away. 

Let the people savor their food, decorate their clothes, 
Feel at peace in their homes, take delight in their ways.
Let them return to reckoning with knotted rope
Rather than writing.

Though the neighboring village be so close
That one may hear its dogs bark and its cocks crow,
Let people stay at home and live out peaceful lives
Never bothering to visit.
