Will Change Change?
What will happen to change?
Will change change as all things?

Should nothing be permanent, even change?
Since change is also a thing.

I saw the destruction of the Noah’s world
And the reconstruction thereafter

Unfolded before my very eyes
The reign of the Greek gods and
The might of Roman, I shared
