The Sirens
 
Sirens sing their songs so sweet
Tempting notes to draw all near
Harpies waiting for the kill
Snaring fools in pleasures vain
 
Beauteous forms seducing men
Hypnotic eyes bewitch and tease
Riches glittering, enticing snare
Webs of pretty poison thread
 
Power and fame alluring treats
Attracting men like glistening web
Deadly is the unseen force
Like the spider waiting near
 
Life’s a dangerous road my son
Hidden threats along the way
Flattering tongues to draw thee in
Turn to venomous lethal fangs
 
Compromise is born of lust
Pride and self do dim all truth
Worldly froth like thin veneer
Cover sharpened claws
 
Into unseen mazes come
Snaring self in silvery webs
Unaware of dangers there
Trapped within delusions snare
 
The dark and evil predators
Stalk the streets in shadows dim
Murky alleys hiding death
Beware oh fool what waits for thee
