Sailor Jerry Rum Label Love Missives: Dig That Siren Sound

Dig That Siren Sound

Sirens, one and all, who
traded rocks
for barstools.
The better to
wreck you with,
my dear boy. They
may be preaching
to the choir, but
this choir boy’s deaf.
Not mute though,
certainly not
mute. Just keep
on dialing that
siren prank call,
pick words pretty and proud
before you make them drown.
But don’t act too
surprised when I don’t go
down—Didn’t you hear?
I don’t dig that siren sound.

Composed 2012. Part of the Sailor Jerry Rum Label Love Missives Series.
