Dead Mako

There’s no hatchet for the door.
Just a lonely set of keys.
Try to lash them to an oar,
On the sea.

I’ll welcome terrors in the night,
For there are lions in my dreams,
I won’t fight life till I die;
On the sea.

What if I’m already dead?
For I cannot feel the pull
Of the ocean in my head;
What should I do?

Try and take it in my stride.
Feel the pressing of my palms.
I won’t fight life till die;
My sea is calm.

I’ve said all my prayers,
And I’ll say them again
On the moro and so forth so on.

There’s no place to buy luck,
But that don’t make men
Turn to good men; that comes within.

So I’ll say all my prayers…
