Captain Tossabout

On a dark and stormy night A ship hit a rock Out of dread and fright Passengers cried “what the fock?” Bodies went flying To and fro Some were dying As you probably know But there was a boat Over the side Standing afloat 30 made it inside The boat was made for seven Cpt. Tossabout had to choose Who would go to heaven You know, who would loose He had to think quick He had to think fast He had to pick Who would be first, who would be last He brainstormed a bit And he thought “this is it” “I have a shot” All eyes fell upon him As he cleared his throat He wondered who could swim As he looked around the boat “Simon Says is the game we’ll play” “And the winners will stay” To this everyone agreed Cpt. Tossabout said “I’ll lead” “Simon says jump over board” Amazingly each body soared They all went to Davey Jones’ locker Cpt. Tossabout was a smart motherfocker.
