Rig Divers North Sea - Poem by Sally Plumb

Where the leviathan lurks
in silent depths
and dribbles its
down turned gape
in sick contempt,
Neptunes sons
courageous tasks
do make about
their salty underworld
in reverence
of its rules.
Where umbilicals surface
and are fed with
good support
and reward for all,
constant vigil reigns.

Hearts do sink
on home horizons
when disaster strikes
the unknown mermen
of an island currency.
