Reflux

We built our cities on the coast 
of this giant bowl 
taking full advantage 
of the forgiving qualities of water

Next to an abyss as deep as our confusion, 
we did our business 
Thinking the magic toilet had eaten
Our invommitable sins

But the whirlpool was reversible 
The flush took its revenge 
An exponential excremential 
soon turned into a hurricane
bringing us face to face 
for the very first time
With the unbearable lightness of sin
