The old woman died, alone, she was found days later.

She was a good woman but no one really knew her,

she kept to herself, ever since she returned from Manitoba.

No one asked, no one cared, they just dismissed her as a weirdo and an alkie, of course.

Now workmen, anonymous, ransack her house: her goods and cherished possessions, valued mementos, are loaded into a truck and driven away, to be dumped, crushed and forgotten.

No one knew, no one cared.

No one knows, no one cares.

House cleared, cleaned, renovated: tomorrow someone else will move in.

Endless cycle of life and misunderstanding,

pain and suffering,

it moves on.

To propagate another cycle of pain.

Endless rain, flooding.
