Of equal worth are all on earth.

Each life unique, the strong, the weak;

Respect is due, for me, for you.

Until the ultimate event,

We must decide how time is spent.

At best, there’s only you and I.

There is no underlying: "Why?"

We each should therefore question: "What?",

And "Who?" and "How?" and "Where?" and "When?".

Then to our heirs bequeath the lot:

Their birthright from five honest men.

Nicholas Thomas 1996
