Sucking Up The Ocean

 

I’m sucking up the ocean, I need a great big straw

or maybe some kind of big old pump could suck up even more.

 

I want to drain the water, to make this distance just dry ground,

for swimming such large distances – impossible I’ve found.

 

If I remove the water and let the sun go and do it’s baking

there will then be an alternative for this long trek that I’m making.

 

An inter-continental stroll but it will take me years,

and to mess so with ecology will bring me down in tears.

 

So I guess I’ll go and pump it back, give water to the tide,

make do with all that I have got – an imagination ride.
