Project “Dam”(Poem)

Water was watered down
flow arrested and molecules
Could not romance
with the banks, plains
and marshes anymore.

The native man was
asked to wear the hat
of larger good
and give up land,
little animals,
rock cultures and so on
and stand for the hydro-power
that darkens their valley forever.

Sure, they were shifted
skeletons progressed to new homes
but the spirits keep on rocking back
to and fro like a pendulum.

Turbines gave a new life
project reports
gave the dose of concrete morals
GDP
up-up-up
Everything else
down-down-down.

—Drunken reporter.
