She was a beautiful storm

that raged across the sea,

and I the stubborn sailor

whom she tried to set free.

But disregarding her concern

I threw up my sails,

visibility low

clouded with tales

of the previous-

who also without a care,

did not heed the warning

of which she tried to share.

Do me a favor? –

Put my name right next to theirs,

carve it in the stone

that lies over there.

Here’s to the ones

stupid enough to dare,

do me a favor

and put my name next to theirs.
