Painting by Danielle Eubank

It's a day and it's a drain
And all the streets are all the same
In every city of every name
The planet over

It's the way a drop of rain
Seeking leaf and root in vain
Must wash away a city's shame
And hide it in a river

It's a farm who lays a claim
Nature's veins as sewer mains
Running off away from blame
To find an ocean

To the beach the people came
Can we save, can we explain
What swims beneath that oil stain
Our little secret
