The Immigrants

Standard

We’ll be gone in the morning.

You and me will sail our ship

to a more favourable wind,

bold and ready for new ventures.

Time to start a new tradition,

far from the pettiness of endless

inane conversations.

We’re in for the real thing.

Deep-rooted folks take for granted

that everyone, given a choice

likes his birthplace best.

Really? It’s an assumption fostered

by narrow-mindedness,

wealth and lack of ambition.

Don’t they know?

Birds sing the same songs

all around the world.

The very idea of homeland

is a propaganda lie.
