How does it feel to be a sea gypsy
Travelling the oceans so free?
Our own little world of freedom
And watch-keeping regimen
Twelve till three my times each day
At midnight and midday
Don’t be late
You’ve a very important date
Landscape a treat
Offshore seascape neat!
Lucky to have “the passion and the job”
Words from Germany a friend does lob
It’s true we say –
Lucky to make our way
Not everyone’s cup of tea
Looking at endless sea!
A small community comes together
Survives all kinds of weather
Skipper – ships dog is the glue
Always wants to be next to you!
On full alert like a meer cat sentinel
With bow-riding dolphins he goes mental!
What does he say with his cherry bark?
“Hey, I love your gorgeous park!”
What do they think of this curious thing?
It’s noisy and looking at us, wow he can’t sing
A brown booby flew by
And chose the bow to rest off the fly
“Loose the hound” the cry went up
From the pics Skippers’ mouth around tail feathers cup!
For Skipper, a round of applause
High fives and high paws
But wait, there’s more to this tale
The bird came back and again Skip got his tail!
The photos are funny and one can’t believe
The bird would not take its’ leave
Just one more crazy thing
The seaness gives imagination a wing!
