Sea Chanties

lightning struck

across the prussian vastness

angry waves cut the sides

as the mast shuddered.

the battle had ended

but the madness took over

the search for new home began

for some, for others

one was to be abandoned

As they recalled the war

the anguish the blood

the disappointment the death

churlish waves shook their stance

Yet again.

But the night was young

And a smooth sea never

made a good sailor.

  1. Okay. So this is simply beautiful; it’s simple and deep at the same time and I think you’re very skilled and talented and the bestest coolest person alive

    Happy Friendships Day
