WET PAINT
Author: kenny howard

Chapter 33
OUR SHIP

SEE THE MORNING TIDE BREAK GOLD
HEAR SWEET BUBBLING OF THE NIGHT
FEEL WARM BLEEDING WITH THE FOAM
TIS ALL BLACK AND GREEN ALONE

HEAR THE SPLASH OF BLOOD ON OAR
TOUCH STRONG DEATH IN EYES
THE SEA OF VOMIT CRACKS THE HULL
THEN SPRAYS THE DECK WITH LIES

THE FEARLESS STENCH OF ROTTING CREW
BURNS THE SOUL SOAKED TIMBER
SHARP BONES OF TIME SOON TEAR WHITE SAIL
HEAR THE CAPTAIN WHIMPER

SALT DECAYING FLESH BLUE THUNDER
TREACHEROUS REEFS FALL FROM LOW SKY
HELL'S OCEAN BLOWING DEEPER HIGHER
BENEATH GOD'S RAIN WE CRY

NIGHTMARES DRY WET ICE BREEDS HORROR
YOUR BED AWAITS SCREAMS UP LOST HATE
DILUTED SAILORS DIE FOR SLEEP COLD
TOMORROW ARRIVES TOO LATE

STILL ON AND ON
ON AND ON
ON AND ON
OUR SHIP DRIFTS......
