Jens Pauli Heinesen

The Lord refrained from granting the cow horns to keep it from butting, and it is better to love a faithful dog than a bad man, he said, – the news spread like wildfire, that Jens had promised to blow up the king. They say he has bought a whole crate of dynamite.

That was the final straw, Jónas shouted, the royal visit has been called off. Let me speak to the Jens, said Hanna Melena and left. She found him in the boathouse. Quietly, he sat there mending a dragnet.

Is it true, Jens, that you have bought a whole crate of dynamite? the woman asked.

That, which is not a lie, is true, said Jens.

What will you use the dynamite for?

An explosion.

What explosion? No answer.

What are you going to blow up, Jens? Tell me.

The king.
