Helmsman, Don't Leave The Watch - Poem by Frank Freimuth

Just like the peak that proves to be an iceberg's tip
which rips and sinks the ocean-crossing ship,
so may a single word, spoken thoughtlessly aside;
evoke some nasty beast, prepared for grimmest fight.
This monster has been fed with sweetest dreams refused,
with ill-considered actions and confidence abused.
