Able bodied seaman

Day seventeen of Napowrimo.  Quite a silly poem today, of a nautical theme.


The galleon set sail
It left the land behind
The mainsail catching
The apparent wind
Across the ocean wide
The blinded Able bodied seaman
Was sent to keep and eye
For storms, Pirates and land
And from the east a ship appeared
As a dot in the horizon
It headed towards them
At great speed
The captain saw the ships gaining
Shaking in his boots
The ship levelled, pirates jumped
Commotion was all about
Abandon ship the captain shouted
As the Pirates put out the gang plank
And one by one the sailors jumped
Into shark infested waters
The moral of this little tale
Is one plain and simple
Make sure your able bodied seaman
Is able in his eyes
So he can see the Pirates ships
And save the sailors lives.
