Siren by swillinbillyflynn


Beware the siren's song,
for it's a song of your demise.
A symphony of temptation,
a rhapsody of lies.
Lash fast to the mast,
resist the urge to stay,
cover your tortured ears
and sail another way.

Or is your soul of little worth?
Are you prepared to trade,
a moments sublime passion
for eternity beneath the waves.
Will you follow the lure
of her seductive tones
Melodies of destruction
that rattle round your bones.

The dark seabed is littered
with all her former loves,
baring silent eyeless witness
to the evil things she does.
So keep a strong hand on the tiller
and set a course that's true.
Beware the siren's song,
for she sings it just for you.
Super shot and verse.
