The Song of Sirens

They really mean no harm,
and all they want is love,
and it is perfectly convincing,
their alluring song of love,
that is so desperately beautiful
that no one can resist
its perfect and expressive honesty.
Still, the only consequence is wrecks and ruins,
skeletons and ruined lives,
and no one knows what happened to the victims.
All they did was to approve of love
and listen to its perfect music
and become enticed by it quite naturally,
they were only human;
and they drank the song of love and perished,
no one has survived to tell their story,
they were sailors all and children of the sea,
who met with the consummate form of love
in highest musical unfathomableness and beauty;
and as far as anybody knows,
no one of them regretted it.

Some say , when some song or woman of emence beauty '' to see her smile , hear sing , i to die fore '' .The Sirens were known about across the anshant sea's , all seaferers talke of little else , a King upon a quest , orderd his men , to block thear ears , orderd his men tie and chain him to the mast , so the King herd the Sirens , sing , while his men did not , the King sceamde at his men to change course , '' cant you hear them , singing , oh how they sing , the men cared on with their tasck's , the King almost mad by now, cryde out his estersey of the bounty of the song of the Sirens , in a heep colapsde , crying as a baby , as his ship left behind the sining of the Sirens , the crw set the King , free , but he was never the same.
Had to write that , Christian , all power to you and yiur great work.
