 Go to water, go rivering

Where the eye that looks becomes a brook

 

 Go to water and learn

A Delta by a hoard of dollars is oil-rigged to kill

 

 Go to water, go rivering

And learn  how Generals machine-gun the creeks

 

 Go to water, go rivering

And learn the flaming greed and grief of man.

 

 Go to water, go rivering and say:

That head must be dull

That beheads the bard

For his tales tall with blacked-out deaths

 

 Go to water and sing

Of life everlasting in water…
