If the present gives you nothing

If the present gives you nothing
Then try the past
Be like a man carrying wet cement
Into the mouth of the whale

If the past has nothing for you
Burn it with brimstone
Become like a new man
Knowing the future

If the future has nothing
Then it’s the life of a peasant for you
Then it’s the work of the plough
It’s the planting of seed
