Siren’s Song

Sing for sweet Persephone, from the meadow she was took.

By Hades with his steely gaze, and his demon hook.

Taken down to the Underworld, forced to forever stay.

He stole her innocence like a lion, attacks its fragile prey.

The sirens saw his evil deed, and Demeter we did tell.

But now we have been cursed, with his cruel-dooming spell.

Our songs were once of love, and the beauty of the sea.

But now their dark magic, bewitches men to their knees.

Once we love we cannot stop, the song that’s in our soul.

Our love now comes with the price of killing— their life is its toll.
