no more secrets

this has been done we thought and took our rest

but did not know that the river still rose

that much occurred our peace to discompose

as angry birds moved through the sky with zest

proclaiming loudly in voices unblessed

so much we did not want then to disclose

we could not blink so then we came to blows

having no choice but lie and jape and jest

into the air smoky and dull with grief

the many dead proclaim how we have failed

their silent word enough to mark our end

for even though this time we claim relief

will soon arrive all see the ship has sailed

even a fool plain death can comprehend
