Bored Seals - Poem by Sebastian Seal
Bored seals are the scourge of the high seas,
Many a ship's captain lives in fear,
They scuttle passing fleets
And steal the grog and beer.
Scapa Flow, that was done by them,
The blame went on von Reuter,
but it was really bored seals.
it was either do that or just loiter.
They scuttled Zeebrugge in 1918,
They considered it game and fair.
And their habit continues today,
Scuttling ferries here and there.
Bored seals were responsible for much,
They did the French in Toulon,
And then the Danes in 1943,
They never cared about who won.
So if you're out in a boat,
And you see a gang of bored seals,
Sail in the opposite direction,
And show them a clean pair of heels.
