Ask the Sea for Mercy (Rap inspired by ‘Aquaman’ [2018])

I’ll bring the raps
Of the Seven Seas with me
Quickly, trust that
You’ll never forget me
It’s a world undiscovered
Unfathomed
My mic is a trident
I’ll throw it back at ’em
It’s like magic
Or maybe a Black Adam
Turn ’em into atoms
Or plankton when I smack ’em
Black Manta
You’ll have to ask your manager
Can’t handle the damage
I left you broke, dismantled ya
Think I’m a joke?
I control the oceans
The power of its motion
Is stronger than your explosions
I’ve forgotten stuff
You’ll never learn
Gotten more treasures than
You’ll ever earn
The depth of my game
Is what you’ve never seen
In a submarine
You would just invite suffering
Not as tough as me
You can’t survive at crush depth
Up against the Trench
It’s just death
So tip the crown
When I come around
If you disrespect, expect
You will drown

If you ever even think
To hurt me
Down on your knees
And ask the sea for mercy
I can solve you
With a dolphin surfing
Down on your knees
And ask the sea for mercy

And there are species
Completely believed to be extinct
That I’ve seen
And they’re sweeter than you’d think
I’ve got your lands
In the palm of my hands
I could squeeze and your fleets
Disappear in the deep sea
It’s not worth it
To have to rebuild
I can wield with a skill
That’ll leave you all killed
My trident cuts deeper than Justice League
Was cut by Joss Whedon
The sea
Is full of heathens
‘Cause deep down it’ll
Leave you not breathing
Leave you choked, groping
For something to believe in
Even Poseidon
Calls me up for guidance
So try this–
Guess whose surface area’s widest?
I hear silence
When I’m holding the trident
Krakens won’t try it
And barracudas compliant
So ask yourself
Who you’d like as clients:
Multi-billionaires
Or Atlantean science?

If you ever even think
To hurt me
Down on your knees
And ask the sea for mercy
I can solve you
With a dolphin surfing
Down on your knees
And ask the sea for mercy

You could think
I’m useless on land
You don’t understand
But you’re welcome to try a hand
It’s a fat chance
I hope MRIs and CAT scans
Are fully covered by your health plans
Don’t need permission
I come aboard
You got a sword,
But I can hit you with a surf board
Or just imagine the shadow
Of a three hundred meter crustacean
As it tramples down your nations
So maybe have a hesitation
Because you do not have
The upper hand situation
My patience
Is not to be tried
The ocean is filled with
Failed attempts at regicide
It’s time for false kings
To step aside
Because the King of the Seven Seas
Arrives on the King Tide
He brings the fish to the people
Aquaman, Arthur Curry is unequaled

If you ever even think
To hurt me
Down on your knees
And ask the sea for mercy
I can solve you
With a dolphin surfing
Down on your knees
And ask the sea for mercy

 

Commentary:

I’d started on an ‘Aquaman’-inspired rap sometime ago, but just didn’t feel inspired for awhile, so I left it until I was ready to write more.  I was listening to the ‘Aquaman’ soundtrack and heard the Pitbull song and thought, gee, I should go back and actually write something.  Well, honestly, I was thinking ‘I could do better than that’, but…that’s a matter of opinion, and meaningless, since one of us is not successful and writes rhymes for free, and the other is well, Mr. Worldwide, I guess?  I’m not up on this sort of thing, I just write them, I don’t actually listen to them much.  Well, anyway, for all five of you who actually read this, thanks for reading.
