Below and deep down,
The sky is still blue,
And there are still weeds to be pulled.

Below and deep down,
I huddle in a boat with no sail,
And watch the birds with gills fly through the sky.

Below and deep down,
It's very lonely.
I was wrong about the mermaids – there
are none.

Below and deep down,
The sky presses down,
And it rains day and night.
