The Narrow Passage; A Blue Haze Of Cigar Smoke - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

Here the boisterous dockers
They play cards
Billiard & Snooker
Some concentrate
The slow moves on Chess
Drink beer
Soda & Water
And blow bubble-gums.
The young Lad, An apprentice in the graving dock
Who's seated in front of a Promiscuous beautiful Lady
Half drunk it seems on a stool
Who exhibits accidentally her new pantie
While moving her skinny legs apart.
The boy's intoxicated
By inhaling the unrestricted cigar smoke
And he heard a ship's horn at the Wharf
By the time the cargo vessl cast off!
He daydreamed that he's sleeping in a luxurious cabbin
With the new panty lady
Until his drunkard Bosun Uncle
Woke him up to go back home!

*[A humble attempt to revisit my swings & roundabouts of sunk bygone seafarer era! Now it's like a forgotten black & white dream, I stranded on Horizon mending my torn sails with a phobia of serious death threats! ]
To oskar & Rahul Atik my fellow Seafarers!
