HOW OLD THE CRY?

NER NER ner ner NER
Sound the children’s jeers.
NER NER ner ner NER
Echoes down the years.
African, Indian, from wherever
NER NER ner ner NER.
They all chant together.

Is it universal
This cry of scorn?
NER NER ner ner NER
Sang ‘ere we were born.
NER NER ner ner Ner.
My grandmother too
Sang in the street
This call to renew.

NER NER ner ner NER.
It is just play?
NER NER ner ner NER.
What does it say?
It is triumphant.
It is glee.
NER NER ner ner NER,
O let it be be!
