She waits until I’m broken down
Her words like knives, I frown
Again we play our little game
Remembering now who is to blame
Kids like us, we always drown
The End of All Things
Seldom do people recognize their flaws
Habits form, few know the cause
Always be weary, trust very few
Recognize your past coming for you
Killing us all slowly, we’ll pause
Secretly, I loved him deeply still;
Heartstrings attached, seemingly against my will.
And yet he only wanted war.
Remember him, I thought, no more.
Knights know only how to kill.
The Hunter in The Ocean
Slinking through ocean’s deepest watery grave,
Hiding, waiting for that single knave,
Attacking with brute unexpected maniacal force,
Relishing in its prize, tasty of course,
Keen mind, killing soul, blood lust.
Sharks? here...- that is really rare
Hurry, they are right over there~
Ah!! No, four great white sharks
Ready to place their giant marks
Kith and kin..Oh, better beware!
Spectre of the Old Blue Sea
Hunted for Man’s glee and currency.
Ancient but now near it’s extinction
Reeling the whole ocean to desolation,
Killing and cutting its family tree.
Question for You
Smoke wafts from your burning mouth,
Having fun without me no doubt,
A flame flickers at the end,
Remind me, am I your friend,
Knowing that it has gone south?
Human Sharks I Have Known
Sinewy shark emits his beastly vibes
Hovers over torn husk and circumscribes
Assails and senses scent of blood
Rips out bones, encases in mud
Killing my soul as he imbibes.
Sunkissed skin, smelling like the ocean,
Hearty laughs filled with strong emotion.
Arguing and teasing, quite an extrovert,
Resisting and wary of being hurt.
Keeping an eye out, holding devotion.
Captain “Killer” Cuxley
Swarthy old sailors warbled drinking shanties
Holding their bottles like crooked atlantes...
All at once, in the dark,
Roy the deck boy yelled “Shark!”
Killer Cuxley ’bout wetted his panties!
