Song of Sand (Suzanne Vega)

If sandwaves were soundwaves,
what song would be in the air now?
What stinging tune
could split this endless noon
and make the sky swell with rain?

If war were a game that a man or a child
could think of winning
What kind of rule
could overthrow a fool
and leave the land with no stain?
