MAY DAY

Alone, all alone stand I
As the merciless waves 
loose rage on this old oak 
vessel.
Alas, the Captain long gone
Hears not the yell of an 
erring Deck Hand.
Asleep was I when abandon 
ship was sounded
Now I know not which to 
save
My helpless self or this half 
sunk vessel?
Both long doomed to crawl 
the depth of this restless 
sea.
