Help me I’m drowning.

Can’t you see I need your help here alone in the cold?
I have an empire full of dirt; I have other treasures like gold,
I’ll give it all to you. Just come and save me! You may think,
How can a drowning man have time to beg for help. Well I’m
not just any man. I have all treasures to give, just save me.
My wealth has many powers, even controls the essence of time,
as the king of the dessert controls the flow of sand. I am no hourglass
but I have my own rights.

Help me I’m drowning!
I was once in your position,
holding the life vest,
was a king,
for my own terms
until my chariot broke,
in the middle of the ocean,
and all my colossal,
Hippocampus drowned.
Just like that.
The waves are coming,
again!

Help me I’m drowning!

I implore you there isn’t much time, it is crowded in this lonely ocean
It gets hard to breathe. Quit just standing there, judging me with
Your eyes, the ocean is off course no place, for a man of treasures
To be lying. The waves now decide the course of my life and
My will is now broken. My treasures now lie at the bottom,
But you can have it all, just throw me the vest! Extend
Your hand, the lightning that cleaves the sea.

Throw me the vest,
Or
Extend a hand,
Bring me to land,
And help me stand.
Too late!!!!
I’m drown-
