The Great Admiral


Amidst bellows and bowls of the darkest depths possible
Sharp vociferations melt the cries of Earth itself
Swirling torrents and jets stifle anxiety unspeakable
As the Great Admiral gyres and crashes along the shelf
Down, down, down

Light rays shy from turbulent ocean spires as it moves
With thirst it devours fins, feet and hooves
Very often seen but never yet found
Shifting and contorting it's lapis crown
Down, down, down

Not a creature is valiant, everything surrenders
Along every coast, the tides it renders
With net or harpoon it cannot be bound
As it devours men whole and delights in the sound
Down, down, down

Many have noticed as they struggle and rasp
Doomed to kiss light goodbye as they sink in its grasp
Of an unfathomable beauty the great fish is wound
As the pressures soar and their heads start to pound
Down, down, down
