“Beyond the Sea (La Mer)”
As America shines a light on the fertile Antarctica, / cracked and set to birth an NYC-sized iceberg, / I hum “Beyond the Sea (La Mer)” / and wonder where you’re sailing / and when you’ll get there.
Meanwhile, we’re all fearing the political climate / more than the climate climate, / as candidates crack under the media spotlight / with their frigid stares and Shanghai-sized corporate funding.
Hey, America, when can I co-own an island, / and receive unlimited, anonymous donations?
Oh sailor, I hope you’ve been thriving in whatever darkened / corner of the world you’ve been hiding.
