Tense

Before there were treasures,
Before there were pleasures,
Before there were measures,
There was love.

Before there were cries,
Before there were lies,
Before there were skies,
There was love.

Before there was agony,
Before there was blasphemy,
Before there was sodomy,
There was love.

Before there were wars,
Before there were whores,
Before there were shores,
There was love.

And then came the hate,
And then came the wrath,
And in the aftermath?
There is love.
