THE BOAT LEAKED…

The water swamped

The bucket into the dark depths

Of evening time.

No one came to help

The time passed,

The trees withered

From root rot

No leaves grew

No birds dared roost.

The rain fell,

The floods carried

It all away–

The old people forgot the swamp

Then they died

And the living wore

Innocent faces without smiles.

So it goes…

The Boat Leaked, So It Goes…
