Meanwhile back at the ranch
Visibility's dropped to near-zero
Thermometer's plummeting too
Ocean tempest tossing and turning
Spraying the nerves of the crew
Deck swabbed by torrential rain
Passengers hunkered down below
Afternoon's slipped into deep shadows
Danger's pulse glowers and grows...
Back on shore, weather's sunny
Gentle breezes, calm and warm
Ignorance is sheerest bliss
When it comes to cruel ocean storms
