Search Switches South – 2nd February 1984

The lost boats, the lost lives
Drowning souls as waves dive
Seeking refuge at the ocean’s depth
Falling in the hope of rest
Search switches south for the lonely men
Family still hope to see them again
Never found, not a ring or hair
Cos they floated north and no one did care

27th May 2023 – I was tempted to rewrite that last line but decided to leave it as written in 1984. I was inspired by learning about the Bauhaus song Terror Couple Kill Colonel which was written based on a newspaper headline. It’s not easy to find a newspaper these days to look for inspiration and looking online for similar doesn’t usually occur to me. Still, inspiration is everywhere.
