Battleship

Ocean blue, upon lazy waves I share this tale Of a behemoth beast- the color of death, lifeless and pale Forty miles long he was, from snout to tail A frightenin' thing onboard a fifty foot barque 'n' sail Mindin' our own bi'sness we was when this thing hit smashin the bulkheads water comin' in- "Oh Sh**"! Off came my tongue bloody 'n' hurtin'- that which I bit Hull cracked - middle o' that boat, it shur did split! Dunno what made that crazy ole' whale think we was bait That look in his eye shore was full o' hate Mebbe he was just hungry- 'cause Billy Bob he ate, Soon 'nuff that whale spit him out, guess he just didn't like the taste!
