..and I am not your friend.

Irish Coastguard on Atlantic watch yesterday.
Irish Coastguard on Atlantic watch yesterday.

I am Ocean

I am littered with your wrecks,

yet you leave me wrecked by your litter.

The life within me left scared as you travel upon me…

perhaps your thinking it free?

The mighty Vikings and Norse,

the British seeking new Empires…blown off course.

Not by Spanish Armada, or through Polo.

No tall ship’s anchor …or ‘Great’ Scott going solo.

Not by German Lusitania … or your Irish Titanic.

Not by powering boat or rowing oars,

will you conquer me , the ocean …alone.

My cost to you through time remains heavy.

I fear for these sins … I must atone!

I am Ocean
