A tongue went silent
Some grey cells, its relatives
Became atoms, molecules, chemicals.
Today some writing on the wall
Became precious museum pieces,
Clues for pulp fiction,
Money spinners for researchers

Time to wait for termites
Time to be legends
Today like a circus troupe
After the season got over
An entire alphabet
Started looking for
New things to do
Like designs on clothes
Today some lullabies
That put generations to sleep
That woke up huge crowds
That made hearts share
That made children hold their breaths
All, all became
Today at 8: 15
The last speaker
Breathed his last
