The Ship In The Bottle

           The Ship In The Bottle

Who can't admire the ship in the bottle
that sits on the mantlepiece of a stately home
with it's windblown sails, its row of cannons
and it's loyal crew.

A ship that will never encounter storms 
or risk danger of running aground on jagged reefs
never seeing action or battling the high seas
and never discover new lands.

A ship of dignity, imprisoned in a glass dome
it will always remain the ship in the bottle.
