A Vast Sea of Ice

By Josh Bauer

It was highly unexpected

That a vast sea of ice

Could create a rare coincidence

That’d never happen twice

It was vengeance that he sought

But his life would be the price

For him to slay his cruel creation

But to him, it would suffice

Was the creature just a vice

Or his creator a device

Of the creature he created

Was he far from all advice?

But that’s when he met Walton

After days of treading ice

Though his countenance had fallen,

His perception was precise

Walton brought him back to life

Without ever thinking twice

With a promise of completion

Of what Victor left behind
