DUST FOR DUST
Thou home of divers being
White and black have you beget
Death dethroned through Cain
Home for all, Home you’re
The Creator had made you like that
Near the way, home was far
Cain slayed him, slayed with wrath
Thus, we wake a carcass on morrow
Crying for the dead with hearts so narrow
Home call, we sing at their funeral
The days in thee are ephemeral
Home you’re, home for none
Dust return, home for the born.
