Beware the sea and all that is in it
It’s clear we are not wanted there.
Don’t ever enter a realm in which
You will have to supply your own air.
Don’t sail upon it, odds are you’ll sink
Scuba diving fills me with primeval fear
The deeper you go into the unknown
The odder all the inhabitants appear.
Things will sting, cut, and try to bite you
They are only waiting for the chance
There are scary deep down denizens
Join me, it’s time we took a stance
Please don’t dismiss me as a crackpot
Heed my message, don’t just ignore this
the water may be crystal clear and inviting
but there’s something within that’s not fish
