The Sea and its Sailors

The Sea and its Sailors short poem

Abandon, abandon the ship
There’s no one coming to save
Abandon, abandon the ship
Quick! escape your graves
Abandon, abandon the ship
She cried
Abandon, abandon the ship
The captain lied to you
Abandon, abandon the ship
There’s nothing left to do
Abandon, abandon the ship
She cried
Abandon, abandon they cried
Believing her silly lies
One by one they jumped
And threw their wretched stumps
Into her – Our hungry sea
Who cried
Abandon, abandon the ship.

Sea Monkeys

Sea Monkeys short poem

Everything we know, or think we know, comes from an infinitesimal speck of time and space. “Important” people, just random specks of insignificance. Nothing more than Sea Monkeys, fluttering around Sea Monkey world. Everything spoken as truth only reinforces ignorance.

A Port In The Sea

A Port In The Sea long poem

My life started like a boat in search of other lands where there would be peace, love and hope And travel I did so much in search of a place where I would not be considered a stranger anymore So
