A Poem a Day to Millennium  24 September 1999

Slide Into the Sea You Blood Red Moon

  my constitution is killing me 

   I know enough to care 

   about the lead in the water 

   or in the air 

   somebody mistook their freedom 

   for a license 

   we should just be fair

   everybody complains about the water 

   but just wait until it's gone 

   everybody complains about their life 

   but just wait until it's gone 

   they all talk about the violence 

   doesn't touch them behind locked doors 

   they don't have to be out there 

   hanging with the poor 

   so if I never danced for my father

   and didn't dance that much with my wife 

   I can hear the drumbeat/heartbeat now 

   I'm dancing for my life 

   slide into the sea you blood run moon 

   we'll do t on the run 

   slide in to the silent, silent sea 

   slide in you blood red moon 

   slide in you blood red sun
