Except

He knew nothing
but what he did,
whom he loved
what made him laugh
made him smile
made him cry.
He knew nothing of time
or watches
except stars.
meetings
or queues
save understanding.
Travel
or outsiders
except the river.
His life was simply
simple.
Then all changed
When the men came.
And all he had known
Was taken from him.
He no longer knew
what he was
what he did
whom he loved
what made him laugh,
smile or cry.
All this the men took.
Replaced by nothing.
But this was not like the nothing
he had known before.
It was their nothing
And it destroyed him.
