White foam sprays and seagulls cry.

Bleached, white planks toast in the sun.

The children laugh and still I cry.

My life has come undone.


Family ties unravel fast.

Money burns our sordid past.

Jewels do tempt my nephews three;

Afraid of what will become of me.


Three in line to inherit mine:

Will Richard cook me a poison stew?

Will Herman prescribe a pill to kill?

Will Frederick make me laugh until I cry?

Until I die?


Beneath the pier is dark and deep.

Water cold and still I weep.

Secrets locked inside a box.

Seven rocks by seven rocks.

    Will Richard try to kill me with a poison stew. (Richard =nephew)
    Will Herman make a pill to kill me ( Herman =nephew)
    Will Frederick make me laugh umtil I cry or die (Frederick =nephew)
    Fourth verses
    Beneath the pier it’s dark and deep
    The water is cold where I weep
    The box reveals the secrets
    7 rocks lay by 7 rocks

    I think the pier is where the box is.
