Deep beneath lies a death defying tale
A tale about a captain and his crew that went upon sail
A tale that ended terribly on the bay of Cashen’s Crop
An evil came amongst the waters, and never stop.
Live and learn if you please of this deadly drawn massacre
That a creature of the deep blue sea who had no shape or posture
It came so quietly in the night while the crew was asleep and bound
It circle them with its evil presence where no one could be found.
The crew was awakened by some strange noise
What they saw made them shriek, and stand with poise
It came closer, and then swam near
that the face of a demon did appear
It hit, and tossed the large freight ship,
and swallowed it down with one good flip.
Lighting and thunder filled the sky
soon the clouds began to cry
Seeing the loss of those precious souls
Souls worth more than the highest gold.
Now that you know the worst is in the past
Yet I say it will not be the last
If you have THE light to guide your way
You know that your soul will be saved.
Trust in He who is the light
To keep you from the lifeless night
If you do not have the light to help you run this race
You may be the next to look upon the demon’s face.
“This is the first piece of poetry I had ever written. I was a sophomore in high school taking my second semester of Spanish. I remember vaguely listening to the teacher, and doodling on my note pad. When I began to write the words just flowed like running water. It did not stop until it was complete. This poem is not in any order, but it is mechanical.” – Kenya
