by Prof. Noriko Mizusaki

Look! Muddy waters flooding
In the shape of a snake they crawl up the river
To spread and cover all the fields
Swallowing villages and heights in the stomach
Swallowing humans and children in avarice
Muddy is the river: muddy is the sea
Radioactivity transformed in winds; in storms
It devours; it flies, it kills
Gods in the heaven got angry; but why did they?
We humans are just tiny insects before you
Why are you playing with us like your own toys?

Come over to ride on this ark
On this small boat
You: ants and other insects!
Hoist sails and start rowing
Sail out for eternity

The ark of Japan
Sail up
