Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Acceptable Risk
 

 

I know them well...those sailors...brave men all
They fight the mighty ocean for their keep
Where seabirds wheel and cry with haunting call
Hoping to find their manna in the deep
Fishing for them...not choice...just food for all
Their home ...just barren land with early fall



They dare and risk their lives to feed their own
Do battle with the elements of foam




The thundering sea sings songs to lure that man
No timid soul or silly fool out there
For mortal man was born to walk dry land
Not face high winds and gales cringing in fear
While stars and moon shine down on silver sand
It takes the sea to pull from man a prayer



Oh yeah ! I know them well... I prayed for some
There will be more...for many years to come
