The Constant Factor

The giver was a miner
The taker didn’t speak
The neighbour was amused.

The traveller didn’t see
The settler lived in tinder boxes
The farmer irrigated their lands.

The one who touched me was a sinner
The one who crossed my heart was inert
The one who worshipped me keeps status quo.
