Sitting here, helpless to warn them, watching the many ships of state

of the entire world running before the gathering far-right storm,

 

No SOS has been broadcast, so there's no help on the horizon.

They're on their own, they'll have to save themselves, but

 

these ships weren't designed to withstand this much punishment;

The doomed passengers line the rails, and look out over the roiling seas,

 

they set these ships on this dangerous course, but now must rely on

their captain's judgment to stay out of harm's way; and that's a problem,

 

for some seem to be fresh out.
