Shallow River

Shallow River

Shallow river, morning light
Wings of rapids take flight
Jagged teeth to catch thy waters
Human plaque to stain thy mouth
Environment thy death hollers
Pounding death rings north and south

Shallow river, blackest night
Covers wrongs never made right
Blessed moon hide thy falters
Sickness scars thy rapid drouth
Sacrifice thy lives for dollars
And rend world’s neck from houth
