Observe when the sun meets the horizon
And the breeze is warm,
The ochre hue splashed across,
Warns of an unsettled calm.
The glassy sea hides in its womb
Seeds of calamity and harm.
The cacophony of the birds above
Indicates a restlessness
The eye cannot perceive
Nature chafing at its harness
The innards start rolling
But the surface reflects calmness.
Suddenly it loses all control
Wave after wave and another
The sea’s fury is eventually
It is partial to none as it rumbles louder
Relentless in its pursuit of prey
To avenge wrongs wrought forever.
On and on it crashed and shattered
The wounds inflicted unabated
Humanity stood battered
Shorn of all it possessed
Beaten and thoroughly defeated
Faith irredeemably tattered.
The predator was now preyed upon
In the justice of order
Men stood bereft of all possession
Clutching each other
The sea returned unrepentant
Finally it had restored order.
