The Ballad Of The Poor Sailor (limerick)

Come hearken to poor sailor’s tale

Whose mate’s senses never did fail

As sleep he was shedding

And morning was spreading

He found his ship heading for sale

It's sad when a sailor loses his ship. Money makes the world go round.

Never mind a ship out of water, but a sailor without a ship? poor confused chap.

Love the image.
