WHEN YOUR NIGHT FALLS

Darkness

Peacocks of beauty, have it all

Saints in duty, get it all

When your nights fall

Pride will shine to fan you in darkness

II

Members of earthly heaven; spend it all

The paupers’ tears; drink them all

When your nights fall

Sins of corruption will wake to help you fight termites

III

Fans of meat; have it all

The poor in your net; have them all

When your night falls

Your stomachs will show others that you’re meatless

IV

If you are chewing the baboon’s hand

Please have a good look at yours

For there will come a day

When death will be human as you turn baboon
