The time has come for his assured demise
A death promised to all those who observed
He stood static, pondering their advice,
But with eyes shut, he never looked concerned.
The waves crashed hard against our sorry ship,
As he slithered like a snail to the plank
The sky shook as our vessel took a dip
The captain calling names and taking rank
The ocean blue was where we once rested
Now a haunting home to torturous storms
My friend, alone, his loyalty tested,
Drowns out the noise as his last thought forms
I cannot watch him die for me today
I simply closed my eyes and looked away.
