All hands on deck

Works Sailing Trip 2010
Inspired by Eliza, written on 20th May this year

All hands on deck!
Best Sunday salutes!
No moping below!
Full sail ahead!

No time for lookin’ aft
No time for maudlin chatter
Keep the vessel ship-shape
And Brizzle fashion

No time for regrets
Worse things happen at sea
There’s always someone worse
Off than you – and pity that poor devil

Keep eyes on the sea ahead
Keep noses clean
And no skylarkin’
– you’ll ‘ave the boat over

There‘re only two speeds:
Full speed and stop
There’s mackerel to be fried
And we’m gain’ on t’other tack

All hands on deck!
Best Sunday salutes!
No moping below!
Full sail ahead!
