Of Love and other things

"Abandon ship!"
the captain cries,
panic under moonlit skies

The crew, astounded, sleepy eyed
notice calm and peaceful seas.

"What ever is the matter, Sir?"
asked simple john who swabbed the deck
a moment in his captains air
the scent of his disease

"Sirens, lads! The sirens come to drown us
one by one, and I shall not be taken. No not I!"

The sailors scanned the waves
No sign of lonesome mermaids
or their songs

"The captain's lost his mind," said John.
