The Boat Was Made From Body Bits

A poem for children written in '09 as part of my degree

The boat made of body bits,

Sailing on the sea.

It floated passed the sunny bay,

And trundled by a quay.

 

The boat was made from body bits,

Its mast was stacked with spines.

Its decking smeared with bloody flesh,

The rigging was intestines.

 

The hull was tightened, twisted skin,

Its bow was fingernails.

The rudder made from human blubber

Not the meat of whales.

 

The boat was made from body bits,

From stern to fleshy keel.

The bones of former humans,

Were snapped to make a wheel.

 

The boat was made from body bits,

The stench would make you gag.

The skin of someone’s belly,

Was stretched to make a flag.

 

The boat made of body bits,

Sailing on the sea.

You floated passed the sunny bay,

And trundled by a quay.

 

The End
