Always From The Life Boat

Always from the lifeboat
I watched my life sinking,
Hanging on and floating,
The foaming waves linking.

Even on a safe ship
I kept the lifeboat near,
In case un-sinkable liner slip
Into the ocean clear.

I’ve seen icebergs floating,
Distant storms approaching,
Enemy torpedo,
Sabotaging weirdo.

I’ve watched captains go mad
And mutineers change flags,
The plague kills all on board,
Pirates put all to the sword.

Like sleeping with lights on
I keep near the lifeboat,
For anything that man made
Is hard to keep afloat.

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
