Water On The Moon

There was further shelling to the south
And water on the moon
The blood lay round his open mouth
There was water on the moon

She saw her husband turn to fire
Beneath water on the moon
The soldier called her child a liar
With water on the moon

The rocket launcher rares to go
For water's on the moon
And a scarred eye looks on Kosovo
There is water on the moon

[March 1998]
