Black Seed

Keep me in the midst of my peers-

Far from the weeds hated. 

We are brothers they say-

And there I shall reside. 

Lower me deep though,

Far from their reach.

A root of no trace-

I will grow to be.


One eye out and one in-

Is my guard of safety.

To grow in strength-

For them to wane.

I'm not a fam of theirs,

To fear for their end.

Their space I must enlarge in-

Spread my tent far to their doors.


Their crops I will possess-

Enrich my branch with their drinks.

When they knock for remuneration, 

Crumps for their silence I rain.

Wet their floors with sweat,

Scatter the leaves that grow wings.

Burrow the grounds they root in

And cut their shoots to never rise again.
