No Country For The Old Man


No country for the old man,
No power for the old house,
No water for the old line,
No rivers for the old town,
No flowers for the old man,
Not lovers for the old man,
No forest for the old land,
No Island for the old man,
Np peace for the old man,
And no identity for the old man!
Because no one cares for him,
And he is always alone.
