WHY DOTH THEE HAUNT THY SHIP ASTRAY?

Almighty storm, I pray

O'er darkness howling at thee,

Why doth thee haunt thy ship astray?

Cajoling vicious play

Mocking thee, preposterous profanities,

Almighty storm I pray

Gallery, I command thee obey

Thou shalt revolt banalities,

Why doth thee haunt thy ship astray?

Villainous hands will not betray

Shrewd theatrical brutalities,

Almighty storm I pray

Protagonist spirits decay

Bitter-sweet waves of realities,

Why doth thee haunt thy ship astray?

Ardent longing o'er lovers ballet

Deadly sins born unto thy depravities,

Almighty storm I pray

Applaud o final, sweet bouquet

Forget me not life's greatest tragedies,

Almighty storm I pray

Why doth thee haunt thy ship astray?
