I don't want to copy your post here, but those are very good points, Lio45!
Yes, no comedic purpose whatsoever is served by Redcloak lifting the crate. Therefore, it must be significant and subject to analysis.
So the song runs on, with shift and change,
Through the years that have no name,
And the late notes soar to a higher range,
But the theme is still the same.
Man's battle-cry and the guns' reply
Blend in with the old, old rhyme
That was traced in the score of the strata marks
While millenniums winked like campfire sparks
Down the winds of unguessed time. -- 4th Stanza, The Bad Lands, Badger Clark
