ALL I HAVE

My All

When it’s all
Said and done
You are everything I have
The greatest I own

Only you
Understand my passion
Over you
I’ll dig you
I’ll turn you
Upside down
Rake you
Toss and turn you
Every which way but loose
As I make you beautiful
As I help you
Bring out
The best in you
Our first harvest
We’ll feed to the needy

No money in the bank today
Yet I touch you
A crisp 1000 kroner note
Warms my hand
I turn you
Inside up
I smell the belly of Norges Bank
I clutch you
In my hands
I feel like
A Black Oil Baron in Oslo
Røkke looks at me
Smiles and says
“Je e ikke forbanna”*

Stordalen beams
Beckons me
To
The Thief
And yells
“Ekte penger, gutt!”**

I love you
Soil of my land
My strength
My power
My pride
For you are
I am
All my land
Is
All I have
