Come With Me

Come With Me


Come, come, the enchantresses sing
Mesmerizing and hypnotic
The sailors are lured
by these sea creatures, so exotic
 
A long time on the seas
forgetting the power of sirens
Charmed by their beauty
Forgetting their environs
 
Fooled by their wiles
Ecstatic at the attention
The unwise men
Unaware of the intention
 
Blindly complying
They are led to certain death
A ship on the rocks
Guarantees their last breath
