Luck of the Seagull Empty Luck of the Seagull

Post  Teresa Jane Price on Fri May 06 2011, 09:44

Oh, the songs bout the ancient mariner,
The sad tunes of love loss,
Sea storms and drowned dreams,
Now, never more true than for sea gulls.
Pirates of sorts, these coastal carnivores,
Scavenging opportunists, with claws sharp
As swords, striking, striking their enemy,
Collecting their due, the fish treasure.
Mobbing across the water, this noisy colony,
Seeking their prey, undaunted by the sea,
Unafraid of the boats anchored beneath.
Till winds arose from a man made storm
With a lightning blast, not far in the distance.
Watching as aqua green dyed a petroleum black,
And drifted upon the marsh's hidden nest.
Their families drowning in goo, black gold,
Their prey floating, dead, no more a treasure.
Left was their ship, wrecked by the storm,
As swallowed were their lives, colony and all.
And though they did protest, in hopes to protect,
Blanketed did the tar, the goo, till there was no flight
And left them to see dying, one to many.
Like the pirates, extinct they may become
All because of a man made storm.
So, did I think before that April
What would happen to the luck of a seagull?
