Sailor gone – a poem

The hardened sailor was seduced,
enthralled
by the most beautiful song he ever heard.
The siren’s call,
it lured him to the cliffs were his ship crashed.
He survived the shipwreck.
Wanted vengeance,
with his rusty knife he climbed rocks,
finding the three wenches singing their song.
He slid their vocal cords.
But the god of thunder and lightening was displeased,
and struck him where he stood.
His family still griefs over his undiscovered body.
