OCEAN

SUN SHINING DOWN, SPARKLING SO CLEAR
IT'S CREEPING BELOW THE OLD WOODEN PIER
SWEEPING THE SHORE WITH IT'S FOAMY HAND
SPLASHING DOWN DIVING INTO THE SAND

AND IT'S THE OCEAN

DARK DEEP BLUE WITH LIFE DOWN BELOW
PLANTS REACHING HIGH, FISH IN THE FLOW
ANOTHER PLACE WITH SORTED KINDS
NOT LIKE US, THEY'VE GOT DIFFERENT MINDS

AND IT'S THE OCEAN IN MOTION

DON'T GO TO FAR THE CURRENT GETS MEANER
IT'LL SUCK YOU UNDER LIKE A BIG VACUUM CLEANER
MAD AT THE PEOPLE WHO CONTINUE TO SPOIL
ALL THE BEAUTIFUL CREATURES WITH THEIR BLOODY OIL

AND IT'S THE OCEAN IN MOTION
