Near the dry river's water-mark we found

     Your brother Minnegan,

Flopped like a fish against the muddy ground.

Beany, the kid whose yellow hair turns green,

Told me to find you, even if the rain,

     And tell you he was drowned.



I hid behind the chassis on the bank,

     The wreck of someone's Ford:

I was afraid to come and wake you drunk:

You told me once the waking up was hard,

The daylight beating at you like a board.

     Blood in my stomach sank.



Beside, you told him never to go out

     Along the river-side

Drinking and singing, clattering about.

You might have thrown a rock at me and cried

I was to blame, I let him fall in the road

     And pitch down on his side.



Well, I'll get hell enough when I get home

     For coming up this far,

Leaving the note, and running as I came.

I'll go and tell my father where you are.

You'd better go find Minnegan before

     Policemen hear and come.



Beany went home, and I got sick and ran,

     You old son of a bitch.

You better hurry down to Minnegan;

He's drunk or dying now, I don't know which,

Rolled in the roots and garbage like a fish,

     The poor old man.
