1 Work in Lament for the Makaris - William Dunbar
04 Apr 2016
He takes the soldier from the battle,
And takes the baby with his rattle.
All men have his equality.
Timor mortis conturbat me.
This is an update of William Dunbar's Lament for the Makaris, which can be read here: http://d.lib.rochester.edu/teams/publication/conlee-dunbar-complete-works I thought I would make the stanzas rhyme in English as it is currently spoken, and after David Bowie died, I decided I would put modern musicians into the poem in place of Dunbar's list of makaris.
