Ship of fools

Last night I got thinking about my past experiences sailing the high sea's, got up and pounded out a little poem, or ditty, or whatever you might call it. Anyway I thought I might share it if you don't mind.

Ship of fools
The captain said set down, set down yer rockin' the boat
We got to keep her steady, that's how we stay afloat
We called upon Jesus, to save us from the swell
We were tossed around so mighty, we thought we were in hell
The captain smiled and said, boys ye ain't goin' to yer grave
We thought the waters would swamp us, but twas just another wave
We hollered out again. Please Jesus save our arse
We sinners drink too much, we're such an awful farce
The lord he heard our cry, come to him on the wind
The boat she danced a jig, then we went down agin.
We thought we darn well perish, in the mighty gale
Go down, go down ye mighty men, you'll this day feed the whale
But then we saw the shore abeam, through the clearlit glass
We landed upon a sandy beach, twas we that saved our...uhhh
We sailors do we soon forget, how Jesus saw us through
With captain yellin' row you fools, next time it be a canoe

I don't know what the key to success is, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.
