The oceans of the world were once a peaceful place to sail.
Seamen scaled the waves and seas in search of killer whale.
They braved storms and jagged reefs with resolute and skill,
Faced dangers of the deep with most determined will.
Typhoons were a challenge that all men of salt could meet.
They taunted daily treachery and laughed at sure defeat.
Today the pitfalls that they know and oft can overcome
Are dwarfed by something new that leaves the senses numb.
A menace lurks in waters dark, in mysterious monsoons.
Fathoms they confront today are sky-borne high tech moons.
Sailors once looked to the stars for guidance in the night.
Now from the heavens they must fear a falling satellite.
