Farmer of Melancholy

16 Jul

BY LYRICAL BACTERIA

Father was a farmer of melancholy

Constantly sowed seeds of melancholy

Until melancholy colonized us

Colonialism crucified us

And that crucifixion led us to the well of wisdom

Covered from dirt by walls of civilization

Tones of gratitude we pass to him
