Poseidon’s Song
Song of the fury
While tempests chant
Gnawing at the nerves
Like evil dogs
The beauty of the skies
Layers upon layers of
Glistening black arms
Dancing to the
Rites of the macabre
Thunder clapping
Tympanums clamoring
Half beauty, half terror
Half passion, half deadly
Beautiful danger moving ahead
With loaded arsenals singing
Flirting with romance and death
Angry barcaroles
Composed by Davy Jones
Hymns of glory to sinking bodies
Of ships in their fateful descending
Landing on blackened floors
Phantoms away from sunlit waters
Falling into cold dark tombs
Into the cradle of Hades
Poseidon’s Song to the
Fate of the sailor
Sailing on stormy seas

Passionate and colorful; I will print it out in order to read it every time I want to remember the fury of the vast sea.
