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.
