Burden: a load, typically heavy.
“Chuck another spanner in the sack. Any old iron, I don’t care. Any old metal, burden me with your load. Fair prices paid, an ear to lend if necessary. Add to my encumberment, I’m here for you. Steel. Lead. Anything toxic to your soul. Copper. Pull up your floorboards, bare your innards, I don’t care. I’ll take it all. It’s who I am. Fair prices paid.”
