Eulogy Song for the Hawaiian Po’ouli


1

a human in a city in the

world

wants to think about

a little bird

2

oh po’ouli

po’ouli

oh oh po’ouli

po’ouli

po’ouli

oh oh po’ouli

3

we found you in the 70’s

and brought your species to its knees

po ouli

poouli

oh oh pouli

4

you are a lonely bird

you are the only bird

with that kind of bone structure

5

we knew you

we knew you

we knew knew knew you

we knew you

we knew you

we knew knew knew you

now you’re gone

Katie Shook
