Rime of the Ridiculous Mariner

" Rime of the Ridiculous Mariner " {warbled to the Merry Tune: Jingle Bells!} Jingle Bells & Flyin' Hulls All sheets in so tight~ Yikes Ahoy! There's the ploy! Sail right through this night! Run downwind beat to weather fall off as ye wish~ Set your mizzen up yer main tops'ls catch all flyin' fish! All's well in yer cockleshell if'n yer head be screwed on right~ Ne'er fear horizon's near as ye sail as though in flight! Some shall say if they may yer off yer rocker tonight~ They them are whot's ne'er far from bein' sunk from sight! So this I say to them that may now hold your hands aloft! Fer if ye think a sieve will sink yer mind is goin' soft~ A hole is but what a troll doth see when all is nightly dark~ For they who may shall thusly say to all a merry Hark! Plug yer doubts & ne'er pout for all shall soon be fine~ Break the cask & lift the flask let's drink up all this wine! Sail the ship & give the slip to all that's dark & dull~ Rock & roll fill the bowl let's sail this mighty hull! To those who think this rime doth stink.. damn I say to ye~ Try yerself those wines top shelf & stand so we all may see! Fer if yer not all outta pot & ain't fell in the drink~ I'll pipe right down without a frown & really begin to think! The smoke will show all such folk whot's made me mind so daft~ Fer always have me wishes come of that whot's all abaft! One day soon shall then I swoon as knowledge comes to me~ That all me life I've had me wife around me as the sea! Now this then is reason 'tis me sits alone in bed~ Fer last wench was had me heart we fell so soon apart! She caught me far below the keel & spoutin' off me spiel~ I tried me best but failed the test got caught showin' off me eel! Now I sail tied to the rail for all mermaids to see~ He who did dare to bid for just a moment's glee! All whot was dear & near such truly did'st I wish~ But Har! 'Twas sure underrr that keel she surely was a dish! Avast! Ye say! 'Tis way too much all this rime of such~ So shall I agree as with my sea fer I've had me quite a touch! I'll leave ye now & point me bow into a raging wave~ Fer now ye know I'm all a'blow & naught but sea do crave! Jingle Bells & Flyin' Hulls All sheets in so tight~ Yikes Ahoy! There's the ploy! I'll sail right through this night! SeaWolf ©

    So we sail, sip and maybe sink! Love the fun in this, you sure have a way with sea words, have to hang on to keep steady reading these things!

    Wayyyy in my cups a tad wee bit much... 'that eve o'the moon when penned as such... and cloud upon which I'd then laid my head... had naught solace at either end o'the bed. 'twas none to blame but meownself... wi'not a bottle left on the shelf...
