A swirling maelstrom stretches
Between two distant shores;
An ocean of the sour tears
Of concubines and whores.

The Tides of Aphrodisia;
The ever-wretched surge;
A cesspool of the wanton sins
Of malefactors purged.

The fury of the air above
Has never known respite.
It thrashes and it lurches
In a sky of ceaseless night.

Swayed by sins of flesh in life,
The fervent are condemned
To soar upon the tempest
In discord that knows no end.


Slaves unto the power of the wind.

From North to South they heave,
Dismembered by colliding limbs.
Their desperate crying muffled
By the tumultuous winds.

As leaves in Autumn shatter,
So do their brittle bones;
The salacious adulterers
Trapped within cyclones.
