All across this continent
Cape Horn to Quito
I have sought a sentiment
That could truly show
Simple as it seems to be
Nature takes its course
Getting all the best of me
Taking time by force

It’s called home
A place that puts the cat in catacomb
A break from colour back to monochrome
It traces out a circle like a palindrome
It’s called love
The heir to the conditioner thereof
More like a turtle than a turtledove
To study like an opening from Kasparov
It’s called

Shreds of common decency
Caught between my claws
Bear with this you say to me
Bear without a cause
Pleasing to the private sector
In the Argentine
Former speaker, my protector
Help me share what’s mine

Glaring inconsistency
Stares me in the mouth
High reward for atrophy
In the global south
Every storm that Mary weathered
On her icy floe
Nothing brought us back together
Still at heart we know
