Pan-Pan, the demons have jumped,
Ship on fire, smoke engulfing.
It's Demonium here! But, we're coping
for now. Hoping in hell
we can beat fire back to pan.

Note: The emergency call pan-pan, repeated three times derives from French, a panne { [pan], "pahn" } which is is a breakdown. The term Pandæmonium, a place name for a Pan of demons 'demonium' was coined by Milton in his 1667 Paradise Lost:

A solemn Councel forthwith to be held At Pandæmonium, the high Capital Of Satan and his Peers.

The word was derived, by combining 'pan' meaning all + demon, with the Latin -ium ending. So pandemonium is literally the place of all demons. While pandemonium is a relatively modern invention, the word demonium, meaning abode of demons or hell, did exist in classical Latin.
