Here Be Monsters

Here Be Monsters ©2016 Robert George BMI

I was on a field trip with my fourth grade class
There were crowded ‘round a fossil from the ancient past
Me, I saw an old map of the seven seas
When the earth was flat and ripe for rich discoveries
In the corner was a drawing of a dragon’s head
And beside that drawing was a poem that read

“Here be monsters
Captain and his compass best beware
Let the timid man, cling to steady land
Let all others leave port if they dare”


Long before the New World altered history
Distant oceans were a fearful mystery
Yet sailors had a heart of courage to obey
So they set sail for the unknown, anyway
Some were shipwrecked…some were lost on islands, left for dead
But the lucky few who made it homeward said

“Here be monsters
Captain and his compass best beware
Let the timid man, cling to steady land
Let all others leave port if they dare”


Well, a new idea
Is an ocean full of wonder
If you sail those waters
People try to pull you under


With my heart and inner visions at the helm
I have tried to voyage to uncharted realms
Though I’ve foundered many times and learned what failure means
I still sail among these dragons on a ship of dreams

“Here be monsters
Captain and his compass best beware
Let the timid man, cling to steady land
Let all others leave port if they dare”


O if you set a pilgrim’s course
You may suffer for it
But when you reach exotic shores
You’ll be tougher for it
