The Bird As We Know - Poem by Francis Duggan

The bird as we know has his last song to sing
But for each of us like the bird there will be a last Spring
And our biological clocks do keep ticking away
Nature's Reaper on our lives does have the last say
We all do need something on which to believe
But the fruits of the sort of Karma we do sow will be ours to receive
The great power of Karma none ought to deny
What goes around comes around to all does apply
The greatest are mere mortals the facts never lie
That us humans like all of Nature's other life forms are born to die
The same for the pauper and the billionaire
A common fate in the end we all must share
The great tree of the forest eventually does fall
And what applies to the tree does apply to us all.
