In 1981, a humourous "book of German poetry" was published in America, featuring poems such as these:

"Schach an Schill! Wend’ ab die Hilde –/Fesch Appel, oh Worte!/Schachfell Daunen, Brockensgrauen,/Und Schill Keim Tuümpel in Naphtha."

What poem has thus been 'translated' into German?

Hari has been caught stealing cattle, and is brought into town for justice. The judge is his ex-wife Garima, who wants to show him some sympathy, but the law clearly calls for two shots to be taken at Hari from close range. To make things a little better for Hari, Garima tells him she will place two bullets into a six-chambered revolver in successive order. She will spin the chamber, close it, and take one shot. If Hari is still alive, she will then either take another shot, or spin the chamber again before shooting.

Hari is a bit incredulous that his own ex-wife would carry out the punishment, and a bit sad that she was always such a rule follower. He steels himself as Garima loads the chambers, spins the revolver, and pulls the trigger. Whew! It was blank. Then Garima asks, 'Do you want me to pull the trigger again, or should I spin the chamber a second time before pulling the trigger?'

What should Hari choose?
