Fleeing across the wide ocean
Butting the wild horizon
Windjammed goosewing
Tracing the lee shore
A storm-born dithyrhamb
Spat from the briny alembic
Defying pirates who mutter
Curses into their beards and
Bite doubloons on the oorlop
Skittering the SkaggerÄk
On this ship I am the captain
And cook and carpenter I
Sing shanties alone and
Keep all the watches
You may try to board but
I will repel you
