Seirenes - sea nymphs - Greek Mythology contest

The song they sing 
Will bewitch you
Promising you everything
Warming your bed to loving you

Heartbreakers for sure
Full of wickedness and sin
They are so evil
Promising love but taking a life

They were handmaidens to the
Goddess Persephone 
When Haides abducted her

Given bodies of birds
Sent to search for her 
got tired and made
Anthemoessa Island their home

There they sang their song
Luring sailors to their death
Orpheus helped the Argonauts sail past
By drowning out their music
with his song.

Odysseus also sailed by
Bound tightly to the mast
His men blocked their ears
Using wax,  so no song was heard

For this to happen
Distressed the Seirenes so much
They threw themselves
Into the sea and drowned.

Moral must be – beware of sirens with blonde curly hair that have sexy voices.  lol
