North of Naught

And the baobad and its sparrows,
And the feminists and the riots,
And the books and its fuse,
And the pope and his flask,
And the king and his daughters,
And the fire and the cornfields,
And the market and the pickpockets,
And the 72 virgins and the terrorists,
And the mistress and her bastard,
And the poets and the subway rats,
And the suffrage and fine bigots,
And the gays and altar boys,
And the times and the seasons,
And hope and its cure,
And the calories that it takes to shed folly on this page,
All is naught,
All is naught,
All is naught,
Amen.
