Just as we wake
and we sleep

So to are we born
and then we die

Civilizations form
whence they fall

The fate of consciousness
for us all

For the sun shines when we day
& not when we night

Or when it’s clear
and not when it’s cast

All in due time, in due place
and in due measure

For eyes must blink
& hearts must beat

Just like the left right
pacing beneath my feet.
