Words lining up, soldier like
amassing power
importunate and presumptious egoes
pushing forward, making themselves heard
still, how inadequate they are
these witnesses pointing at themselves
often they don't even speak the truth

Reborn through connotations and fashions 
this language of ours re-creates itself
our words are not fixed in eternity
changing shape and content, flittering like waves
only animals' wordless one stays immaculate
our language grows young every few years
part of it becomes meaningless to old people
wild blabberings from Babel, maybe set to music
living languages prick us with spears of noise
this communication may turn generations into strangers
