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.
