The Time We Tried To Live

The time we tried to live

Was an audacious act


That the rich did not find so adoring

As to us they’d rather crush under feet

Than be meek and humble to another


To care after humanity,

Sharing dragon’s hoarde-

How ghastly that we dare request,

As if necessity, the need to love each other


Before the earth alone heeds her breadth

Through toil


To breathe no more
