I disagree with the first comment. This poem does not hint at "the 'one'
language," but is a commentary on the fluid nature of languages in general.

This poem is trying to say that years ago, they have been using the "one"
language, and now, you do not use the "one" language from long ago. If you
look at it in the futute, you may not use a certain language, they you have
heard in 2000.
