from Sing Data:
birds caught in the storm eye
circling round for days and
days and when the storm reaches land
the wealthy have already left
for vacation the prison guards have abdicated
have you noticed when the poor
leave it’s called an evacuation
land nullified of poverty
birds land exhausted
find shelter too tired
to mourn those evacuated
under water the prisoners stand
on makeshift step stools heads
sideways kissing the ceiling keeping
the water out of their lungs their lips
