Loose Hips Sink Ships - Poem by Ted Sheridan

With her lips firmly emplaced
Around the manhood of the vessel
She sinks the battleship along with its loyal crew
Davy Jones opens up the Ocean’s locker
As the ghost ship joins the Armada in the depths below
She is but one in a trio of sisters
Determined to make all men their slaves
See the winds raise their waves of turmoil…
They speak to warn you of her name…
This monster of the deep and low….

    Intriguing poem. My nominees for the enslaving sisters would be lust, greed and pride. What a bite that fun and self-destruction should be so closely allied! (Report)Reply
