The Ocean Blue

 

Down in the ocean blue 

The hell of scripture lies. 

Seductive mysteries 

That blind the brightest eyes. 

 

Sirens draped in blood; 

The shadowed forms of tortured creatures. 

Angels trapped in white; 

A soundless hall of sinless preachers. 

 

The devil, charming teeth spread wide 

Brings monologues of gold – 

To masses, mad with need to find 

The riches beyond hold. 

 

The crazed – unfocused – focusing 

Set sail in blinded want. 

A daze – unnoticed – noticing 

The victims of the hunt.
