Keeping a Weather Eye Out

Two Rooks, Keeping a Lookout
Two Rooks, Keeping a Lookout

Lament (Part XI)

If you had a sailing ship, in the olden days of the tea clipper
and you were out on the ocean and needed a hand, or even a flipper,
to make sure you hadn’t lost your way in all that water,
wind and weather. It’s hard to know which way you ought to
point the boat, or ship or shall we just say, the vessel in,
that’s something you really just don’t want to be wrestling
with, when you’re all at sea. All you need is a comfortable crows nest
Climb up there, relax, and just do what crows do best.
