Vox Populi

A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature

What did you bring to the world?

Traditional Nepali Song

What did you bring to the world?

What will you take away? It’s all just a two-day fair.

You don’t have many days to stay, traveler.

And you still take pride in false identities

—riches, youth, and appearance.

You came with closed fists;

you will have to open them when you leave.

It’s all just a two-day fair.
