The metaphorical language of poetry is not for everyone, especially when it comes as fast as in this video. "Wind fighting the wind; rain fighting the rain" means one single element being in contest with itself over the lands over which once it passed. This is of course a metaphor for the equality and oneness between all human beings, whom are home to this world just like the rain and the wind. And, like the rain and the wind, they are actually without national borders, they just live on one planet called the Earth. The remark about people "emptying their bladders, seeking their food, shelter, and love" illustrates the delusion of the glory of rulership, because no matter how great your palace and your throne, you rule over very ordinary people that wake up groggy in the morning, empty their bladders, and then pursue their basic human needs. The poem emphasizes that though these things such as food, shelter and love are very ordinary, they are deeply special and important to the ordinary people. With "ordinary people" I mean the average civilian that does not concern him- or herself with power, greed and status. The poem tells us that nothing really changes when one king is thrown off his throne and another takes his place; despite all the bloodshed, ordinary people will still be ordinary people, pursuing and delighting in ordinary things. This means that these power struggles are useless to the actual people themselves. The only thing that has changed, is that the sea of blood and tears has risen a level higher, and that a few more cries of anguish have joined the echoes of sorrow in the eternal aether.
