Elves  Live  In The Land     
      Beyond The Great  Dam.      
   It Was  Built In The  Late Sixties.  
     The Elves Came To Us Then.     
 They  Were  Very  Manipulative,  And  We 
 Came To Trust  Them.          Us 
 Kids Would  Play  Down At The Water Even 
 Though We Were Not Allowed.        
     Sometimes The  Sluice Would  Close 
 Entirely,  And  The River  At  The  Dams 
 Foot  Would Dry Up,  Revealing The Rocky 
 Water   Garden   That  Had  Been  Hidden 
 Beneath,  And We Would Go There.     
        Before The Dam Opened  Again, 
 There Would Be A  Signal, But The  Elves 
 Would Make Us Not Hear  It, And Suddenly 
 We Would  Find The Water Rising, Already 
 At  Our Knees.               
  By Then The  Elves Would  Be  Gone.
