we were hiding from the sun's early rays.
we were waiting as the tides rose up higher.
we were hearing of the darkest of days
when the algae would bloom and poison the water.
we were hiding from the sun's early rays.
we were patiently awaiting disaster.
we were settled in and stuck in our ways.
we were laughing in the faces of scholars.
and the clouds were passing by.

we had heard of the tears running down from the faces
of the giants that loomed from the top of the glaciers
when a warning rang out, it was the buzzing of bees
but like the call of the arctic, we just would not believe it,
and the clouds all rolled up, each had something to say
they were raining impertinent knowledge
and we just watched as they passed by.
and then the sunrise filled the sky.
