Munch-Petersen, Gustaf Uddrag fra the time has come

the time has come,
when man shall no more
try to be anything
but man besides the rest which
is not us -
the time has come,
when the ruler shall
be a ruler only among the rulers,
when the lover shall be a lover
only among lovers,
the time has come,
when man shall have to
be himself only,
and be that
to the rest which is not him -
