The Women of Nicaragua



The women of Nicaragua sweep

The women of Nicaragua sweep
Sweep the dust into the streets, sweep
Sweep the trash into the ravines, sweep
Sweep the blood into the rivers, sweep
Sweep the bullets, sweep
Sweep the shrapnel into piles.

The women of Nicaragua wash
Wash the clothes, wash
Wash in the red-tinged river, wash
Rinse, rinse, the blood won't go away.

The women of Nicaragua search
Search for firewood, search
Search for money, search
Search for food.

The women of Nicaragua cook
Cook in the heat, cook
Cook as the smoke tears their eyes, cook
Cook while the dust creeps back into the house
On the feet of small children, cook
Cook while the men carry on their wars.
