The Lyrics

I think the Delta’s screwed—
It’s more saline.
They pump too much water so you
Can be lyin’
On lush lawns, lyin’.

We live in an arid
State where grass turns brown
In the summer; planting
On arid savannas is unsound.

Once was the Delta blue. . .
Long-ago times,
Long time.

Delta hue
Once was blue
The state grew
Now the hue: muddy brown
And now in there:
More salinity.
Quality: down.
Can’t clear see.

It sometimes smells of Euw!
The whiff’s not fine.
