hello, who's that?
this is God, am I speaking to Man?
yes you are, this is Man, can I help?
I'm calling about the home I lent you.
oh Earth, oh yeah, it's good, it's great.
mind you, we're starting to get quite low
okay, Man, stop and listen,
just stop and listen.
hear it? that's
the slap of Earth licking its wounds
on alternate beats, backed by the
final toxic heave of a requiem shark
and the one-way cooing of a mourning dove
lost in the invisible shroud
of your own waste.
stop and inhale the comfrey, marjoram and
through the vapour trail of progress.
Man, this is no longer my Eden.
beneath the rag-wick slick
the Euphrates runs red
in memory of my dream.
are you listening, Man? Man?
the other person has disconnected,
please try again later, the other person
please try again later...
