Scuppered hulks 

High cliffs of rusting steels hulks
towering over the sandy bay
eerie victim of a past war
scuppered to block the way

creaking from the waters below
slowly eroding into the sea
marine life here is taking over
these hulks left to rot completely

masts skyward at slight angles
the elements have taken their toll
paint work has become thick rust
all that`s left is a ghostly soul

here these hulks will now remain
a symbol of the world mistrust
for nature has a new home now
as the sea claims these ships of rust
