Swells Do Roll and Crest

Swells do roll and crest

Ever higher and deeper

In violent rage

Poseidon shows no mercy

In the face of man’s folly


He takes what is his

Via trident and tempest

As done for eons

Seafarers have felt his wrath

With their last breath and their souls


Neither steel nor wood

Doth offer them asylum

This is not his way

As he strangles his victims

To fill his watery grave
