About Aegeus, father of Thesues, who told Theseus when he came back from the minotaur to put up white sails so he wouldknow his son was alive. But Theseus stupidly forgot, because, of course, Greek myths cannot end happily ever after. So, Aegeus saw the black sails, and his poor heart couldn't stand it, so he committed suicide via the nearest cliff. Note: Cursed should be pronounced curse-ed for this poem.
White sails! White sails! come to me.
Swiftly sailing through the sea.
Black sails! Black sails! Cursed be!
And now I go to join the sea.
