My hopes fly high on magic wings
To where the sea and siren sings
Along that wild and rocky shore
Replete with tales of ancient lore.
Men lost their lives and were remiss
Scheming for this forbidden bliss
Tis truth exists, they play the game
Refusing to acknowledge blame.
While life seems wanting, to be fair
We all must learn to give and share
To search for less destructive ways
Save dreaming for idyllic days.
The siren’s song was long ago
Perhaps a fable seamen know
But we are here with truth to tell
About the heavens, earth and hell.
