We Landlubbers Sail The Seas
Reader Star Rating:
Ben the sailor, had the gout and needed more crew to sail about
so one bright day Mila, his spouse, declared "Find us more hardy mates."
And so a call went forth in the kingdom henceforth
the boat must be sailed by mates with strong gaits.
So landlubbers, we who favoured the rail, answered the call to set sail.
But after we came aboard, no longer moored, we wailed.
No time for such, said our Captain Ben:
Haul up the main lads and lassies, all do not flinch, do not falter.
You will not be lost or sick if you keep a firm hand on the stick.
His sailboat was Lodestar like Polaris our guide afar.
We sailed many seas in heavy breeze
found memories and lore and our way back to shore.
Though Ben's lead was sound and we had loads of fun
we landlubbers did kiss the ground after our days in the sun!
And so we now all heartily wish thanks and good cheer
to our friend, our mentor.
Happy birthday to Ben, may he live to 110!
