Work in progress pantoum. First poem I’ve written in over 10 years, probably.

We eat we shit we fuck and we die
some gestate and give birth
we kick we scratch we bite at life
ignoring the cost for all we’re worth

some gestate and give birth
have kids, keep chickens, work 9 to 5
ignoring the cost for all we’re worth
do all you can just to stay alive

have kids, keep chickens, work 9 to 5
sleep when you’re dead, make a bed of earth
do all you can just to stay alive
there’s no going back, no time to rehearse

sleep when you’re dead, make a bed of earth
we kick we scratch we bite at life
there’s no going back, no time to rehearse
we eat we shit we fuck and we die
