Siren Song

By

The saccharine song of sirens 

proves far too tempting to resist. 

Even the hardiest of men 

are swept up into the bowels 

of the ocean, on the fateful 

occasion they stumble into 

the path of sirens in song. 

.

Their music is soft and sweet; 

It tickles the ears of sailors 

as they are tempered to dust.  

.

And as they sink, and sink, and sink, 

their gold all turns to rust.
