A Night On The Rocks? - Poem by Reece Kaye

What say they of the Siren’s Song
That has not yet been said
What folklore has been passed along?
Returning rumours from the dead.

Beguiling tales around the globe
These creatures, they immortalise.
As Homer spoke of Himeropa
The Rhine folk heard their Loreleis.

Some say a suicidal lover
men’s unfaithful hearts will call
Or playmates of Persephone
Who knows in truth? Who knows at all?

Be they birdlike, be they mermaid
Cliff-top callers, good-time gals
These maritime Black Widows are
epitomes of Femmes Fatales.

So be warned men, block up your ears
Look not towards their sultry shore
Remember, thinking with your cock
means you, not them, should be branded a whore.

    I have always questioned why the prostitutes are arrested and the men allowed to go free, but you have finally answered the question of who the real Whores are in this situation. Thanks, REECE, for the thought you have put into this problem.
    Loved It! !
