Enough To Fill A Fire Bucket
How deep is your ocean ?
Are your tears drowning in the Red Sea ?
Is that black keyboard able to swim ?
Will your wet-suit protect you from the frozen lake ?
How long before your aqueducts run dry ?
Have you someone, to repair your heart’s broken levees ?
Are you able to withstand the crushing waves ?
Will those floodwaters ever stop ?
Has the smouldering really been doused ?
Were your love ones ashes, washed away today ?
Is this the story of life, for you ?
Then, ring-out the moisture, from your leftover soul
Fill the fire buckets, with raindrops of sorrow
Let us join the human-chain, and throw water on the flames
