The Ocean and The Diver


In me they wade.

In me they play.

In me they won’t stay,

Humans will come

And they will go.


The human will try to breath,

And they will succeed.

But I can let them know

How dangerous I can be.

One swift tug on your face

And out pops that tube.

The tube you use

That one that lets you breath.

Your lungs filling

With the heavy air

That presses into me

From above.

One quick swell

And I turn your world dark.

As dark as the air

That presses above me

Can get.


But for now,

Play in me.

For now enjoy my wonders.

You human,

Are a welcome guest.


For now.
