Storm At Sea

Surrounded only by the Atlantic sea,
The winds were still, with clear blue skies.
The captain then summoned the crew to the conference room,
Little did they not know,
It would be disaster very soon.
In split seconds before the captain could’ve ended the meeting
A weather advice was issued,
The sailors hardly got time to buckle up their shoes.

The captain started to command the crew,
But many stood in shock, they didn’t know what to do.
The sails were taken down to avoid tearing,
The tides rose then it start raining.
As we examined the waves and the winds batter the ship,
A crew-men shouted, I think I broke my hip.
The water got so high it rushed over the boat bow,
The captain ordered, “Get inside do it now!”

I was so scared my heart skipped several beats,
Water coming from somewhere running down my feet.
Everyone on board started to murmur,
As the kitchen staff announced time for dinner.
The storm lasted two days and three nights,
We arose after to a glorious sunlight.
