Moon Over Managua

from by Miller Carr



September rain
Washes the blood stains
From the cobblestone
On the streets of León

Amparo wept
Under a dark cloud
Next to the marble steps
When inside the cathedral

The lion stirred
Upon the tomb
They're gonna get what they deserve
And it's coming soon

Amparo don't you cry
Revenge in near!
Rigoberto walked right through the needle's eye
A blood sacrifice

Sugar cane
Below the volcano
You ran your bath and then
Looked on Momotombo

On the balcony
Carnelian trumpets
Bloom over the marketplace
And the moon over Managua

Is on the rise
Over the palms
I hear Dario's lullaby
Serenade the dawn

And the space between two thoughts
That you thought was lost
Tied you in a knot
