Non existing people (a poem)

I have no identity card
Am I not a man?
I lost my birth certificate
Was I not born?
Valid passport?
To go where if the road is closed
License to drive (what drives)
I cannot help laughing
When they ask for a railway season ticket
Then they ask if I have
A special identity document
I am thinking of my identity for a long time
Actually, where am I in the history?
Who am I?
