Common
once we rose with the rising sun
and lived to our hearts desire
till one of us went and betrayed us all
stealing the secret of fire
some of us started up prayers
while others developed claws,
shedding some common blood,
while others wrote common laws

time gathered some downhill speed
while in autumn the rivers went dry
all settlers agreed that it was the fault
of strangers, hang, kill the rallying cry
and some begot only daughters
while others were fathers of sons
the rivers rose high with brown waters
and all told some common puns.

and some rose to soar in heaven
while others dropped like a brick
some harvested mountains of corn
while others ploughed land dry and sick
a lot of the time there was shooting
some fell, others chambered anew
and promised strange kids a new dawn
with a common, less blood-red hue.

sitting at dusk by the fire
with whisky or gorse-gathered tea
some thought of father and mother
and stayed or decided to flee
and all had forgotten the power
that cuts and weaves all the threads
while ants are milling in common ways
devouring the communal breads.

Never sigh for a better world it`s already composed, played and told
