The Wreck of the Frisco Pier



The Wreck of the Frisco Pier

Many a tale’s been told of storms out on the seas
Disasters from days of old brought sailors to their knees
Earl came from the east on that September day
With the rage of a beast in a rampaging way
History will show how the mighty did fall
With the wreck of the Frisco Pier

The sky was red as port as on the scaffold high
They gathered for their sport so eager for to fry
To reap the spoils of Neptune’s chest
Their lines endeavored(?) but they never guessed
That they were destined to lose it all
With the wreck of the Frisco Pier

Born in the Isles of Green a monsterous gale did blow
With fury that few had seen his destiny yet to show
Earl waxed and waned on his journey to land
Till few remembered his earlier stand
A minor depression would only forestall
The wreck of the Frisco Pier

The warnings had been repealed, the time of danger flown
And so their fate was sealed, if only they had known
That Earl was regaining it’s vigorous breath
And would soon be striking a blow dealing death
The savage destruction, the shatter and maul!
The wreck of the Frisco Pier

And now a year has passed, we all say “What the heck!
Why don’t we all get gassed, and peer at the Frisco wreck?”
Moonlight is shining where turtles have nested
Beside the work of man that nature has bested
A shore-side attraction that tourists now call
The wreck of the Frisco Pier!
The wreck of the Frisco Pier!
