Timeless and True

Timeless and True
based on an English nursery rhyme

Timeless and true
the eyes of history
have fallen on you

Hark, hark! the dogs do bark,
Beggars are coming to town.
Some in rags, some in jags,
And one in a velvet gown

And we are like children
eagerly throwing baubles
at the feet of a beggar king
currying favors with each toss
secretly hoping to be noticed
to be raised up by the great man
beyond our humble beginnings

Hark, hark! the dogs do bark
Beggars are coming to town
some are dark, some are fair
and one is seeking a crown
