A Bountiful Mutiny

Updated on November 3, 2019
The captain is in charge of all...
The captain is in charge of all...


When the ship's captain jokes too much, takes nothing seriously,

His actions indicate there's something amiss, rotten in Denmark..

If he's challenged in his decisions or shows disgust, not pridefully,

As wrong choices made, is prone to just howl, like dogs, to bark.


If it is discovered he has proven unworthy, no longer is fit to rule,

When behavior so bad that he lashes out, hostile, is out of touch.

Is perhaps a time to consider a new captain, when acts like a fool.

A mutiny may be best to solve the problem, as such is too much!


A big head, one that is self-indulging, always falsifies every speech,

Indicates one who's in charge, has a lesson to learn, not one teach!

If the great ship is not guided well, when storms are on the horizon,

Then time to batten down hatches, there's a meeting with Poseidon.


Mutiny on this ship is due, not a time to pretend or deny the wrongs,

Saving the cargo, men on board, is a must, a correction now belongs.

A true captain loves his ship, those who serve, time before the mast,

A new leader must take hold the wheel, a unified vote is now so cast.



A calming sail on the horizon...
A calming sail on the horizon...

      Yes. It sounds like if he acts in a way that is not best for his crew...he needs to go. Find another.

      Good write.

      True. A ship needs a good captain... one with the crew's interest in mind, a smooth sailing and successful destination. Good poem!

      I think this poem could be applied to most of the world's rulers at present. Very thought provoking and well written.
