A Song of the Sea Gods

Waves are sent crashing on these rocky shores,
gods of the sea become restless indeed;
ships will be sent to the cold oceans’ floors.

Bleak ocean depths hold the souls to be freed.
Crystal blue waters turn dark and disturbed.
Gods of the sea become restless indeed.

Their ire and anger are no longer curbed,
waves will still build, and cruel storms will arise.
Crystal blue waters are dark and disturbed.

Krakens are loose so the shore’s for the wise;
seas swallow ships now with nary a trace,
waves will still build, and cruel storms still arise.

Trident of Neptune will never disgrace;
Manannan’s power will not be denied.
Seas swallow ships still with nary a trace.

Harm needs repair at the turn of the tide,
Manannan’s power will not be denied.
Waves are sent crashing on these rocky shores,
ships again sent to the cold oceans’ floors.
