Give Me Not A Sea For A Mother ..... [ Response To John Westlake's 'The Sailing Boat Pitches [019]; Stormy Seas And Boats; Quite Short; Humor (I Hope) ] - Poem by Bri Edwards

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.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

yes, John Westlake's poem inspired this 'comment' from me. i have written another similar (but maybe a little more serious) sailing/storm/boat poem:

'25 A Sailboat's Last Thoughts.......[Human/Sailboat Nature; Drama; Weather] 11/16/2012'

it is longer. bri :)

    Thanks Bri. That's twice I seem to have inspired you with my older poetry. At least you're making people laugh with the results including me. Let's see if you can't make it a hatrick! (Report) Reply
