The crew was punished when the cat came out of the bag;
Use this here warnin’ for today’s aquatic black flag.Coleridge wrote of an albatross' revenge upon a Captn's narcissistic ways;

Sailor Beware;
These waters look like the streets of Times Square.Detail... Sailor BewareDetail... Sailor Beware. Sir Cpt. Drake forewarned Britannia of peril by strikin' his snare;

Watchful rhythms rise again, rap-tap-tappin' an ocean prayer. 

Sir Cpt Drake forewarned Britannia... Detail Sir Cpt Drake forewarned Britannia... Detail Shantyman SaysInked JellyfishLadies on board turned welcomin' waves into startlin' seaways;

Sultry symbols of yesterday warn ye today of watery plastic melees.

His eerie rhythm still floats on guard today, alerting us to what the sea has become. 

Sir Frances Drake forewarned uncertainty... Detail Inked CrabIf ye deprive a spider’s life o’er dark blue waters, a squallin’ storm will roar;

Eight legs still warn today amidst salty bric ’n plastic brac, in this modern sealore.

But have no alarm for the plastic gyres spinnin’ up consumer terrors.

Blackbeard ‘n his feathers haunted mid-century sailors;

Troublin’ the sea like debris from consumer retailers.

Blackbeard ‘n his feathers... Detail Rainbow to windward, foul fall the day;
Rainbow to leeward, damp runs away.

Put plastic in our future, the human odyssey may conclude;
Put plastic in our past, and amend this here feud.

Found items adrift, but nothin’ akin to colors or karats.

Suchlike consumer waste streamin’ downriver.

A swine sightn’ would dock a ship for days;

But no alarm for society’s floatin’ castaways.

Stormy weather swellz with the sight of rabbits;

Rapidly multipln' like human's obsessive consumer habits.
