Give Me Not A Sea For A Mother ..... [ response to John Westlake's 'The Sailing Boat PItches ; stormy seas and boats; QUITE SHORT; Humor (i hope) ]
John Westlake wrote a poem, The Sailing Boat Pitches.
In it he compares a boat to a babe, and the Sea is as a bitch is,
a rocking tempest swinging her babe violently, side to side.
The rocking is so violent that her babe broke down and cried.
The kid's mast broke off; i hate to guess what babe-part that was.
In time, thank God, the mom calmed down; no longer did she buzz....
like a chainsaw creating havoc for her sweet tormented sea-child.
I think Mom should take sedatives.........to NEVER more be wild.
