The Water People

It's everyone's right, everyone who sees
The vastness of the oceans
The continuous widening of the sea

It occurred to them that when the land fell
They should find someway to survive
The new Earth they called hell

And live as they might
With each trembling breath
They cough the whole night
With a disease they call death

But the sun dawns
As it does every day
And they ride along rough wind
Going along their way

And this cycle they know they're keeping
Because it a dim future where the cruel waters
Are never, ever sleeping
