The Eagle said,
“Give it to me. I will take it to the moon.”

“I will bury it on the bottom of the ocean.”
The Creator said, “No. They will go there, too.”
The Buffalo said, “I will bury it on the Great Plains.”
The Creator said, “They will cut into the skin of the earth and find it even there.”

“Put it inside of them.”
And the Creator said, “It is done.”
