[Poetry] more about oceans

more about oceans

was it exciting to be on the seas
with bitter salt stinging your hair

trawling for treasure
on coasts of the main
with letters of marque
tight in hand?

Raiding ports, riding
on swells and crossed tides
laying out sweeps
aft and leeward

galley slaves beating on pendulous drums
shouts all around amidst broaching sound
cannons and men overboard!

we’re taking on water, my captain
don’t know how much longer we’ll last
as Brad said to Janet
when Furter began it
life’s pretty cheap to those chaps
