Summer of Darkness

the earth is bleeding

we heard the music of an underwater menace

Great White, lurking near the beach for unwary swimmer

tho this summer no one ventures

to the fouled beaches

as the danger now is blackness

and the summer water not red with blood of body

but oil black earth blood brown darkness of soul

gone mad with grief and anger

spewing contempt for mere mortals

what soundtrack this?

are hills alive with the sound of music?
(from whence our help comes)

or dying cries of dolphins

and turtles burned alive
