PLEASURE

Beneath the seas No loneliness is known

Rain never falls Seldom a cloudy day.

I was diving for perils far off the coast

trying to stay clear of the nuclear submarines

and tourists looking for love and treasures.

In the distance I saw the Titanic

sleeping on the ocean floor.

I saw her swimming across the upper deck

she was on that maiden voyage too long ago

She took me to her cabin - An oasis in the sea

We danced a decade away

as the fish and memories swam by

She told me how she had waited

for so long to be discovered

I said, "me too" as I swam out the door

and returned to the land I never once believed

Some day I will return to the Titanic and her

But until then I can only stare at her smile

that constantly beckons me to return

and keeps me from having the women I meet

at single bars and barmitzvah parties

knowing beneath the sea she waits for me

with Bacchanalian pleasure for evermore.
