I read this sometime during the week, thanks for posting it for all to read. The greed of the few will destroy the Earth -- what a tragedy!

Such a devastatingly sad and haunting poem that is in reality a horrific truth for all who live along the mighty Xingu river. Damn that dam! And all who support it. My heart is very saddened for this young boy and all of his people and the wildlife who are having their homes ripped away. Thanks Nancy

Luciano's poem is a cry for the the river. This is a damning indictment of what can be done to the lives of Nature and to others.
