Written by a resident - or should that be "citizen"? - of Saylorsburg,
PA. Naturally, I'm accustomed to *hearing* this spoken and sung in BE
and other Southern-English subdialects and in the relevant
eye-dialects. But this is the first time that I've come across it
seriously used in writing. And by a Northener, at that.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
