M. Daedalus - POETRY / POESIA

inner fatherland

Banish all the monarchs,
Erase all the borders,
Seize all the customs,
Lower all the flags,
Shred all the passports,

Burn all the maps,
Smash all the compasses,
Forget all the routes,

Demolish all the bridges,
Plough all the roads,
Scuttle all the armadas,
Dismember all the aircraft,
Demobilise all the armies,

Suppress the notion of space,
Declare the abolition of time.
I have found my inner fatherland

M. Daedalus
