The Sirens sang to Odysseus in Homer’s tale.
Lashed to the mast he did not fail
To resist their fatal call.
Should I listen to their song
I would fall
And be lost among Hades ghostly throng.
My future may be as my past
For there is none to tie me to the mast.
The Sirens sing
Yet the wise know
That their song signifies nought but woe.
