On board the freighter "Lady Ute".* *Ute, German female name
[and questions are moot
in the crew's living quarters.
A brawl between detractors
brawl if the rumors are true.....
Despite the sexy "see through",
which was worn by the Sparks,
(the female radio operator),
[ fear of sharks
had dominated their minds.
[always in the sailor's minds.
[swallowed by the sea.
Of this, all the stories agree.
The place is connected
[to the Atlantis story,
which Plato describes, its culture
Atlantis, swallowed by the sea.....
Nobody saw this continent again,
it was not to be...
Ships and aircraft reported missing..
Memories of which we now are [reminiscing...
Actually 1000 ships and planes
No distress signal was ever heard....
[when everything was fine.
These vessels were never found,
[no even a slightest sign.
This area is known as the Devil's Triangle....
A continuous jolt, left the ship to dangle,
ship's bridge too..
[it was midnight.
Earlier the same night
all over a fear prevails.....
For some unknown reason
[we lost the propeller
even the captain, the yeller.
A deathly silence hung over the ship.
which was drifting rudderless,
[a horror strip...
The sea seemed to evaporate,
seemed to boil,
as in our holds, our tanks
[the hot crude oil....
The stars sparkled,
[the sky seemed to be lowered.
panic crew was running
[back and forward.....
The Indonesian cook,
[ baking goddess Anna,
screamed “get high is the solution,"
We woke up in the morning
it was the tug boat warning
that started our towing from hell...
Baking goddess Anna cried,
"breakfast is ready", she rang the bell.
Radio operator Sexy Ava,
[wore her perfume, Coco Chanel.
