The Mermaids are gone and the ocean’s laid bare;
but the seafarers today don’t seem to care.
High in skyscrapers they now ply their trade;
no longer the ocean where legends were made.
Now ships of cold steel cut through the brine
and of those who loved her, there is no sign.
On land or on water it’s all the same;
we saw and we conquered in humanities name.
As Gaia lies dying from so many harms
we race headlong into death’s waiting arms.
Helter Skelter is here and we are all blind;
on the other side of Hell what will we find.
