When You Be Thirty


When you be thirty
A better Poet Seer
Will chant
From your lips
The sacred verses.

I will be dust
You blood will be
Bubbling with the
Acid of life
That I had before.

And as with me
Take your opportunity
To chant and sing
And verse be the salt of the earth
Acid of life.

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
