Enemy Waters

Under the Sea

Swim carefully
The tendrils here are deadly
They curl and coil about you
To draw you further in

Swim cautiously
The many coloured fish are all
Siren songs to your decline
Beautiful assassins

Swim hopefully
Within the web of blue and white
The sun sprinkled up above
Reflections to the surface

Swim carefully
Enemy waters may yet beguile
And to the deeper darkness draw
Your childlike innocence
